“It’s not about the politics, it’s the story of what happened on the ground that night.” – Mark Geist (callsign “Oz”)
To say that conservatives who are horrified at the prospect of Hillary Clinton being elected President this November are salivating at the release of the film “13 Hours” would be a major understatement. The National Review’s article on the topic is titled “13 Hours: The Non-political movie Hillary can’t avoid.” Conversely, Salon.com has an article claiming the movie won’t harm Hillary’s political chances.
The quote from Mark Geist comes from a featurette about the film from its official website. He was there in Benghazi and is one of the co-authors of the book that is the basis for the upcoming Michael Bay film. Numerous reviews of this book claim it ignores the political controversy and instead focuses on the events that these “contractors” were involved in. But will that be the case with the movie?
