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?”
