Video: Benghazi story too far-fetched for political fiction author

about_bradFans of political thriller authors like Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy and Brad Thor understand how uncanny it is when real-life terrorist attacks mimic similar fictional accounts we read in their books. It isn’t surprising, though, that these authors have their finger on the pulse of the political climate. They, like many authors in the genre, do extensive research and interviews in the intelligence community when writing their novels.

Author Brad Thor appeared Wednesday night on “The O’Reilly Factor” to speak about the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi. Thor told O’Reilly he has many questions about events in Benghazi, but the Obama administration hasn’t answered them. He said he “believes there is much more to the situation than has come out publicly.”

“If I tried to turn this story in to my editor, I’d be thrown out of her office…There are too many holes in this story,” Thor said.

For Thor, the first question that needs to be answered is “of all the days for an American to be traveling in an Islamic country, why was Chris Stevens in Benghazi of all places on 9/11?”

    Stevens was killed because he found out the US was shipping weapons to terrorist.

    1. Stevens was running guns in the night…..because of FAST AND FURIOUS….they had to shut him up!

    This story is driving me crazy. I cannot believe that nothing is being done about it. It is like we are all just sooooo dumb. Obama should be put in jail! (Along with all the rest of them) It infuriates me. I tried to put this video on my Face Book page but couldn't get it to work. I went on You Tube and can't find anything about the interview on there. I wonder if they pulled it. "Or" it was never on You Tube. (just Fox) EVERYONE should be so alarmed about a mad man running our government. UGH The press are horrible. Sorry if I sound a little upset. Carol

    President Obama is so arrogant that he actually believes his Muslim brothers would never do anything to harm his reputation. He didn't want to beef up security nor to pull out staff as the Brits have done because it would look like we didn't trust our Muslim brothers. Of course no one in their right mind would trust that bunch of rabble but Obama was willing to put lives on the line just to make a favorable impression. Only the impression was not favorable, it was the impression of a trusting fool so why wouldn't the militants take advantage of the opportunity handed them?

    But the problem really goes back to our involvement in the overthrow of Gaddafi Duck. Everyone was all "rah, rah, kick the evil dictator out" but just a few quiet voices were saying "but wait a minute, Gaddafi may be evil but he has maintained peace and stability in the region and we don't know who or what will replace him, things could be much worse. The fact is life for the ordinary Libyan was probably better under Gaddafi than it ever will be again, but the US just has to meddle in affairs of other nations and we get bitten every time.

    Obama started the Arab spring with his apology tour. It gave the Arabs the idea that the USA had their backs. But anyone familiar with the Middle East (or with the Iraq fiasco) should know that, although there are many people there yearning for freedom, the power behind the scenes is the radical Islamic faction. Now we see that Egypt has another civil war brewing. Also we don't know the ultimate outcome in Libya, Iraq, Syria or Afghanistan. The moral of this story is that if you don't know what you are talking about, keep your mouth shut. Now Obama has to cover up all the mistakes he made in the Middle East. How many more innocent people will die and how many more radical countries will we have before these blunders are sorted out? Iraq was probably a mistake, but at least Bush put OUR money where his mouth was and tried to determine a proper end point to the conflict. Obama started the fight but doesn't know where to go now. His solution will obviously be to lay low and cover up.
