Michael Bay, who has such great real-life documentaries as The Transformers, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles credited to his name, has made yet another film called 13 hours. This movie is constructed around the Benghazi attacks in 2012 in Libya where Americans, one being Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.
Republicans were PISSED that the white house initially blamed Benghazi on a movie. Now Republicans are blaming a movie for why Hillary Clinton is totally guilty of everything they said she was on Benghazi. The irony… it’s palpable.
This sounds like a ridiculous story and I wish that were true but they really believe this stuff.
Senator ‘Tehran’ Tom Cotton came out with a statement after the film’s release that sounded like a disturbed mind that can’t tell fiction from reality:
The actions on the film highlight the utter negligence of Hillary Clintons State Department leading up to the Benghazi attack. Hillary Clinton was negligent at a minimum in not ensuring that they were [granted extra security] … her conduct was grotesque. A sequel might be called five minutes because that’s how long Obama and Secretary Clinton put into their role here.

Sadly, but unsurprisingly, he was not the only one. Former Deputy National Security Advisor for President George W. Bush, Elliott Abrams, and former Ambassador Ron Weiser agreed that the movie did not play well to Clinton’s 2016 run for the White House. Weiser said, “The movie speaks for itself.”
The movie does speak for itself. It is riddled with every conspiracy theory and lie about Benghazi known to man. They even outright use the phrase “stand down,” something that NEVER was issued as an order, in the film to bait rabid right-wingers.
Hello, McFly… It’s a movie. It’s fiction. Not real, get it?
Michael Bay isn’t known for much beyond special effects extravaganzas. That is basically the concept of 13 hours, except no giant robots are trying to take over the Earth this time.
And then people like that say other countries hate us because of our freedom…
