13 Hours by Mitchell Zuckoff sofarsoShawn gave 4 stars to 13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened In Benghazi (Hardcover) by Mitchell Zuckoff
A thrilling read, yes - when the ambassador's compound is burning, but the GRS team is stuck at the annex because of a recalcitrant CIA boss - that movie trope of the stuck-up captain, "but this isn't procedure!" comes into into life. And a sad read... yes? Two ex-military GRS operators die, Tyrone 'Rone' Woods on his last mission and a father of two with one on the way, and everyone's best friend Glen 'Bub' Doherty. Reading this, I asked myself, is that how those towards the further end of left would respond? Is it sad? Or do they take a secret delight and find identification with the terrorists? When the towers came down did they react, "how dare they"? Or though some convolutions, searchingly found they did in fact deserve it?

I saw that one of the Bernie Bros (Irony Bros) bought a ticket to see this and I wonder what his response was. He's into MMA so he still has some of the brute about him; he's not a complete neuter like so much of the left. Leftists frevel in the destruction of traditional hierarchies, so what could be more left than cheering on the destruction of American military might? Did his sympathy lie with the dead Americans or more ambivalent, turned round into hate - the punishment wasn't enough - and, perhaps, more should have died?
