According to Brandon Webb, a former Navy SEAL, and Jack Murphy, a former Green Beret David Petraeus was brought down by an internal CIA coup. In addition,
- Obama security adviser John Brennan was running a secret war for Obama "off the books."
- This led to the Benghazi attack which was a retaliation for secret raids authorized by Obama security adviser John Brennan.
- Elite counter-terrorist operators from America’s Delta Force were deployed to Libya as 'analysts,' which allowed President Obama to declare that America did not have any boots on the ground but was simply providing air support for the rebels. The reality was that Delta Force had a small contingent instructing the rebels in the finer points of weapons and tactics.
Webb and Murphy said they wrote the book to reveal 'the truth' behind the attack. They say news accounts of the incident have often been inaccurate because journalists have not had inside access to the people who were on the ground at the time. The authors have been frustrated, they say, by politicians who have attempted to twist the facts of the case to suit their own ends. Conservatives sought to use the attack as an election issue and place the blame on Obama. Democrats and the Obama administration have worked to deflect responsibility and downplay the warning signs that were present before the consulate was raided.
