Coming in early February is my non-fiction ebook which I co-wrote with Brandon Webb. If you’ve been wondering why I haven’t been posting on SOFREP as much as usual, it is because of this project. I spent months on this ebook. I sifted through the stacks in the basements of Columbia, read through diplomatic cables that came out via Wikileaks, combed through white papers, and went back and researched relevant books to get the most complete picture on Benghazi and Libya. Beyond that, I consulted with numerous sources on Benghazi who helped flesh out the big picture and what really happened that day.
It was a long, uphill battle in which many of my own assumptions about the attack on the US Consulate and the death of four Americans was called into question. One of the deceased was in fact best friends with Brandon Webb and an acquaintance of mine. For this reason alone, we felt compelled to get the most complete story. Yes, the media lied to you, but maybe not in the ways that you think.
Brandon and I are both proud of this book and will be doing some press for it upon release. Because this book questions assumptions and even includes on the ground accounts of what happened that night there will be a lot of controversy. I know what kind of heat is coming. When people have been caught up in a scam their natural reaction when that scam is revealed is to withdraw even deeper into the fraud. It is a protective measure, no one wants to admit that they were wrong.
As I wrote in the prologue of the book, let the chips fall where they may.
