13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi


This marks the end

of a long and painful chapter

for the people of Libya,

who now have the opportunity

to determine their own destiny

in a new and democratic Libya.

Warring gangs

continue to raid

Gaddafi's abandoned armories

as a battle rages in Libya's

two largest cities.



It's loaded.

- How's the team here?

- Good.

Three ex-Marines,

one ex-Army Ranger.

It's nice having

another team guy around.

Good to see you,


Good to be back.

Man, it's hot!

How are

the kids, Jack?

They're good.

They send their love.

Can you believe Emily's

about to start kindergarten?

She dating yet?

You better

watch your mouth.

I thank God

I got three boys, man.

You're in for

a rough ride, Jack.

Payback's a bitch and her

stripper name is Karma.

You come up with

that on your own?

I saw it on

a T-shirt in Mexico.

Hey, check this out.

Remnants of

the revolution, man.

Is Becky still mad at me for

dragging you into contracting?

Come on. She's mad at me,

she's not mad at you.

I'm part of the old crowd,

the old Jack.

The new Jack carries a

diaper bag instead of an M4.

Is this coming

from Tyrone Woods,

dental nurse,

who works for his wife?

Guess what?

Not out here, brother.

How's the real

estate business?

Pretty bad.

How bad is that?

I'm here, aren't I?

Well, this place sucks, Jack.

Not only is it hot as balls,

but you can't tell the

good guys from the bad guys.

Shit. No, no, no,

this isn't good.


Who the f*ck

are these guys?

What do we got?

The brigade we coordinate with

is the February 17th Martyrs.

This ain't them.

Shit, we're boxed in.

Are we bailing?

Base, this is Rone.

This is Rone.

Come in. Over.

This is base.

Go, Rone.

I'm in a jam

off Fifth Ring Road.

I'm looking at about

eight armed Tangos here.

Copy that.

Sit tight.

"Sit tight."

That's great advice.

They got a KPV.

Base, we ain't

got all day.

Hey, Rone. They're

trying to get Feb 17

to back you up,

but we're coming.

Hey, Oz, I'm in a

jam off Fifth Ring.


Rone, 17 Feb QRF

is being alerted.

F*ck that.

The only Quick Reaction

Force I want is my guys.

No. Contact 17 Feb QRF.

Send them!

I want my guys.

Tell them they're not

allowed to leave the base.

Negative, Rone.

Just hang in there.

Maybe I'm not

making myself clear.

I'm looking at multiple

radical insurgents

with AK's and

a .50-cal technical

set to blow my Rover all the

way back to Zimbabwe. Over.

It's not my call,


Here we go.

Welcome to Benghazi.


Libyan visa.


Libyan government.



Pull over

for inspection.


Pull over

for inspection!

I'm sorry, sir,

I can't do that.

Look up.

Go ahead, look up.

You see the drone?

No? That's all right,

because the drone sees you.

Sees your face.

We know who you are.

If anything happens

to us, your home,

your family, boom, gone.

Give the order

to let us go.

I want the car!

No, I'm not

gonna do that.


I earn right to decide the

future of my country.

You're talking

to the wrong guy.

How willing are you

to die for your country?

I'm ready to go,

right here, right now.

Leave here

while you still can.

We got air support?

We don't have any

fucking support.

Check the new rides. Gaddafi had

a going-out-of-business sale

on armored vehicles.

Max-level armored, man.

We got a great deal.

We stole them.

Sat unattended

at the airport.

Hey, Chief!

I don't want to

hear it, Tyrone.

No, no,

I understand.

I see what

you're going for here.
