What Really Happened in Benghazi

Sep 16, 2014


On September 11, 2012, terrorists attacked a U.S. State Department compound and a CIA building in Benghazi, Libya. Those events have been the subject of immense scrutiny and hearsay, with some saying they lay the grounds for impeaching President Obama. In a new book, the writer Mitchell Zuckoff tells the story of a team of security contractors who fought to repel the attackers in Benghazi. He joins us Tuesday to tell the story of what happened during those 13 hours of mystery and controversy.

Mitchell Zuckoff is a professor of journalism at Boston University and the author of six previous nonfiction books, including Lost in Shangri-La and Frozen in Time. His new book is called 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi [Amazon|Indiebound].
