As 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi heads into its second weekend in theaters, Paramount Studios and the filmmakers are determined to help the movie find an audience. They’ve just released a clip with endorsements from retired officers. General Michael Flynn (United States Army – Ret.), General William Boykin (United States Army – Ret.) and Lieutenant Colonel Giles Kyser (United States Marine Corps – Ret.) all gave quotes supporting the movie. Check out the new video below to find out what they said.

 

  • Whether it’s got a metallic quality, most other reviewers thought is stinks. Box office returns back them up.

      Oh I don know. Had two empty seats where I saw it.

  • TeXan1111

    The Generals must really hate O’Bamma to hurt their reputation by fibbing.

    • BixlerB

      Oh there’s plenty out there who disagree with Mr Obama. Since he was elected in 2008 Democrats have lost:

      12 Governorships
      69 House seats
      14 Senate seats
      910 State legislatures

      That’s over 1000 more Republicans in office and 1000 fewer Democrats. He is the DNCs worst enemy, a fine legacy for Mr Obama.

        How could you loose 910 State legislatures as there are only 50 states and no state have more than two–house and senate?

      • Heyload18

        I think he meant to say legislators.

      • BixlerB

        Yup. “tors” not “tures”. A few letters do make a big difference. Thanks for catching the oops and for fixing it on my behalf.

    The movie is not a favorite of the media, Hollywood elite or the liberals.

    • Doubtom

      But it does beautifully illustrate how Americans get most of their history. How could we do it without Hollyweird?

      • BixlerB

        Far be it from me to defend “Hollywierd” but they do get it right from time to time. It’s a beautiful illustration of an entity revealing truths when none are forthcoming from where they should and where better to get the truth from than the guys in the trenches in the thick of it.

      • BixlerB

        Ya it’s sad how we have to depend on “Hollywierd” to get the truth out now and then. They do get it right from time to time.

    Saw the film only to confirm what I knew from other sources. The truth is out there and those who do not want to accept it do so because ideologically it upset their view of Hilary, Obama and maybe the government. The film was done in a non-political way. It told a story of being abandoned and just how dysfunctional the state department is. The current administration has no to be ashamed of than the many that have gone before!!

    • BixlerB

      “Saw…before” Spoken by a true card carrying liberal. How many administrations had an ambassador killed on their watch and in such despicable fashion? Ya just give em a pass. Yet another fine example of zero accountability in the Obama administration.

      • 6782844

        Naw you got me wrong. I’m not willing to give these guys a pass on Benghazi, just the opposite. Someone should go to jail or worst walk the streets of Benghazi all alone from one end of the town to the other. I’m referring to this film and how dysfunctional a state department full of entitled people operate. That is how these brave men dies and Ambassador Stevens died by Bunga Bunga (raped tortured and burned).

      • BixlerB

        Uh boy. Ya my bad 678. Guess I read it too fast. Thanks for the clarification and for being on the right side of this.

  • Sno

    What is important, the administration, the only entity that actually knows what happened, has not endorsed the film.
    Therefore it is nothing more than a fictional thriller.

    • BixlerB

      The people who were there in the middle of it confirmed the history. I for one don’t need politicians to determine if something is true or not.

    • BixlerB

      I can only hope you have since understood how absurd your statement is. So now “big brother” has to approve a film for it to be acceptable. The people who were there in the middle of it confirmed the history. Their only agenda was staying alive. Can’t say the same for politicians.

    • BixlerB

      So now “big brother” has to approve a film for it to be deemed credible. The people who were there in the middle of it confirmed the history. Their only agenda was staying alive. Can’t say the same for politicians.

  • BixlerB

    Excellent movie. I highly recommend it. That said, if you’re looking for an Obama or Hillary bash look elsewhere, not in this movie.

  • TeXan1111

    Brass?

    Looks like two 2 Generals have said it is good.. out of thousands of retired generals… just saying..

    • BixlerB

      Actually three. They took the time to give a dam while others were off playing golf.

  • Yellow Devil

    It’s a good movie, saw it during a matinee on Sunday, though the time I went to see it there were only a few people in that showing.

    Wasn’t a fan of the shakey cam effect during some of the scenes, but it slightly tapered off by the end.

    There is a scene near the end that properly summarizes the movie, when the remaining security contractors are at Benghazi Airport, waiting for a plane to pick the rest of them up. What appears to be a C-130 rolls up the tarmac, and one of the character quips “That’s Libyan Air Force. Still no Americans”.

    Its a movie, nuff said.
