Summary
On the night of September 11, 2012, the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, Libya, came under ferocious attack by a heavily armed group of Islamic terrorists. The prolonged firefight, and the attack hours later on a nearby CIA outpost, resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the American ambassador to Libya. After the fall of Qaddafi, Benghazi had been transformed into a hotbed of fundamentalist fervor and the center of gravity for terrorist groups in the violent whirlwinds of the Arab Spring. On the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a group of heavily armed Islamic terrorists set their sights on the U.S. diplomatic and intelligence presence. Based on the cooperation of eyewitnesses and confidential sources, the authors reveal the terrifying twelve-hour ordeal confronted by the Ambassador, his security contingent, and the CIA specialists who raced to rescue them.--From publisher description
