What Can '13 Hours' Tell Us About Benghazi?

Congress continues to investigate the 2012 attacks on a U.S. diplomatic mission and a CIA station in Benghazi, Libya.

This week the film about those attacks is being released on DVD. It’s also available on demand. “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is based on the book by Mitchell Zuckoff.

We revisit Zuckoff’s conversation with Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson from last January.
