Raw emotion spills out over Bret Baier’s powerful 13 hours in Benghazi special

Powered by Topple

Twitter exploded with raw emotions, including anger, heartbreak and disbelief during the Fox News special “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.”

“Heartbreaking.” “Powerful.” “Wow.”  These were repeated sentiments on social media while the show aired Friday night.

Kris “Tanto” Paronto, Mark “Oz” Geist and John “Tig” Tiegen, three security operators who worked at a secret CIA annex in Benghazi, gave an exclusive first-hand account of what happened the night of the attack and why Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith and Amb. Chris Stevens lost their lives.

Powerful tweets from host Bret Baier began telling the gut-wrenching story of how the men were told to stand-down, a fact that the administration continues to deny.  The painful recounting of the epic failure of that night and government lies that followed it, fired up the Twitter community in seconds.
