New book & film coming about attack on American mission in Libya

Considering the impact of the 2012 attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya — resulting in the tragic deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three of this associates — it’s not surprising a movie likely will soon be coming to the big screen. Thunder Road has acquired the film rights to “The Embassy House,” the book penned by ex-British Marine Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis, being published next month by Simon & Schuster — expected to again reignite the controversy over decisions made at the time of the attack.

Jones, reportedly very close to Stevens, was in charge of the security detail at the Benghazi facility.
