I recently obtained 50 pages of documents from the CIA on the support they provided to Michael Bay’s Benghazi movie 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.  In this investigation for Shadowproof I outline how the relationship between Bay and the Agency started well, how they leaned on Bay to remove ‘unauthorized information’ from the script and where it all went wrong, resulting in the CIA badmouthing the film when it was released.  As the only film about one of the most contentious and controversial events during the Obama administrations, 13 Hours may not be a good movie, but it’s an important one.
