3 Stunning Indictments of Obama and Hillary in Benghazi Movie
2. “State’s Already Blaming Al-Sharia”
Right after flying from Tripoli to Benghazi to join the attack, Glen Doherty (Toby Stephens) delivers a quick line damning Hillary Clinton:
State’s already blaming Al-Sharia.
Doherty means that the U.S. Department of State had already identified terrorist group Ansar Al-Sharia as the attack perpetrators. The movie later mocked the Obama administration's statements blaming the attack on protests against an anti-Islamic YouTube video titled Innocence of Muslims. When Jack Silva hears this, he immediately responds:
We didn’t hear any protests.
From the beginning, the attack was organized. Assailants were armed with AK-47s, rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs), and -- devastatingly -- three mortars.
In these few isolated moments, 13 Hours subtly reminds Americans that they were lied to about the Benghazi attacks for political capital in the November 2012 election.
