Director Michael Bay’s riveting, heartbreaking, and infuriating “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” opens with five simple words: “This Is a True Story.” What it should have read was, “This Is a True Story The Media Has Covered Up For Years.”
God damn these people to Hell. . . .
Michael Bay — you know, the guy who makes those “Transformers” movies — just made a film critical of a sitting president’s foreign policy, and knocked it straight out of the park.
Bay’s “13 Hours” is not only a compelling, unbearably tense, brilliantly choreographed action film, but like a true artist, he does not stoop to being preachy or pedantic to make a damning case against a Obama Administration, that not only has a depraved indifference towards the truth, but also towards American lives. . . .
Read the whole thing. Nolte points out that 13 Hours is not a “political” movie. It’s a true-life action movie like Blackhawk Down (about an earlier Clinton-connected debacle) that allows viewers to draw their own conclusions about the policy which resulted in the action portrayed. What I hope is that the audiences who see 13 Hours will ask themselves, “What was the policy? Why was Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi? Why weren’t the American people told the truth, not only about the events of Sept. 11, 2012, but also about the covert State Department operations that led up to that disaster?”
The media know the truth — all of the essential facts have actually been reported — but the full story of incompetent Obama/Clinton policy blunders that led up to Benghazi, and which also resulted in the rise of ISIS, has never gotten the kind of sustained coverage that CNN typically devotes to “white cop kills teenage black criminal” stories.
Our national media have sold their souls to the Democrat Party. Their news coverage is determined by political calculations. The editors, producers and reporters are all Democrats who never miss an opportunity to promote partisan propaganda. They are hired liars.
John Nolte is exactly right: “God damn them all to Hell.”
