MEGYN KELLY (HOST): Breaking tonight. A Kelly File exclusive on the gripping new film that may pose a threat to Hillary Clinton's hopes for the White House. Welcome to The Kelly File, everyone. I'm Megyn Kelly. Many insisted after her most recent testimony on Benghazi that this issue was over. Her defenders pronounced it is officially time to move on. That the terrorist attack that took place in Libya on September 11, 2012, which the administration argued was about an internet video offensive to Muslims, was neither Mrs. Clinton's fault nor misrepresented by her.
But a major motion picture about to be released by Paramount Pictures, "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," makes it very clear that Benghazi was a preplanned terrorist attack. The film is introduced as a true story and reintroduces Benghazi as a potential campaign issue that cannot be helpful to Mrs. Clinton. The film is told through the eyes of the men who were there. Three of whom are with us tonight. The real-life heroes on the ground in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. They helped director Michael Bay craft a gripping film that captures the fierce fight to protect dozens of Americans and the desperate calls for help that went unanswered by President Obama's administration, including Hillary Clinton's state department.
