“13 Hours”: Film review

I’m not really sure where I stand on the allegations of what really led to or contributed to the Benghazi situation, but this movie definitely portrays a complete debacle of hesitation, lack of command and control structure, inability to act decisively, and a hellishly confusing vagueness around who exactly was fighting with and who against the Americans in Libya.
Of course, one might ask why a covert CIA base was operating out of there in the first place, but that question isn’t necessarily central to this film, which, by the way, is well worth watching. It builds tension quite well, which then explodes in compelling battle scenes.
