Plymouth, Minn. -(Ammoland.com)- “Their radios again crackled with beseeching calls from the DS agents at the Compound TOC. ‘Armed men!'”
“Taking heavy fire! They've overrun the Compound! We're all locked up! We need help!”
Yet amidst the cries for help, the CIA base bosses and Team Leader would not give the operators the go-ahead to repel the attack at the US Diplomatic Compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.
“Another radio call came from the Compound. The warbling voice of a DS agent was so tightly controlled it sounded constricted. Several GRS operators sensed fear edging toward panic: ‘If you guys do not get here, we're going to die!”
These are excerpts from the book, 13 Hours In Benghazi: The Inside Account of What Really Happened, written by New York Time's bestselling author Mitchell Zuckoff. The author teamed with the five surviving members of the CIA Annex Security Team, who are for the first time ever, setting the record straight by sharing their personal account, directly from the battlefield. Their's is the unfiltered, politically objective, just-the-facts story.
While you could and should read the book to learn what really happened during those deadly and chaotic thirteen hours, you can also hear the unfiltered, chilling story from the heroes themselves on Friday, July 17th 2015 at Sealed Mindset in New Hope, Minnesota. This one day only event will be your chance to meet, talk to, enjoy a photo op with, and even experience personal weapons instruction from John Tiegen and Mark Geist-two of the heroes who lived to tell the tale.

About Shadow Warriors Project
The goal of the Shadow Warriors Project is to create a better everyday life for as many American contractors and their families as possible. These contractors do not receive the medical and financial benefits available to regular military and often find themselves without support to cover the costs of medical injuries incurred on the battlefield and the resulting loss of income.
