Directed by Michael Bay and starring John Krasinki, “13 Hours” recounts the harrowing tale of the brave men who on Sept. 12, 2012 fought back as terrorists attacked the U.S. Special Mission Compound and the nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya. A small team of U.S. veterans repelled the attackers and save many lives in the battle that would eventually claim the lives of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Navy veteran Sean Smith and veteran Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
