Written by the team of former Special Operations warriors who run, here is the definitive account of what happened before, during, and after the deadly Benghazi attack. On September 12th, 2012, Brandon Webb learned Glen Doherty, one of his closest friends and his former Navy SEAL teammate, was killed alongside Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and two other Americans when the U.S. State Department and CIA headquarters in Benghazi, Libya, were sieged in a shocking terrorist attack. For the next four months, Webb and his team at, the world’s premier Special Ops website, embarked on a relentless investigation to understand exactly what happened to their countrymen, as well as the roles played by the Obama administration, State Department, and CIA. Drawing on unmatched sources, they spoke to individuals who would talk to no one else, including fellow Special Operations team members familiar with the African theatre, and to well-placed contacts in the Washington intelligence community. This is their report—an unforgettably gripping minute-by-minute narrative of the events and their aftermath as they really unfolded on that terrible day in Libya.

Told through the eyes of current and former Navy SEALs, EYES ON TARGET is an inside account of some of the most harrowing missions in American history-including the mission to kill Osama bin Laden and the mission that wasn't, the deadly attack on the US diplomatic outpost in Benghazi where a retired SEAL sniper with a small team held off one hundred terrorists while his repeated radio calls for help went unheeded. The book contains incredible accounts of major SEAL operations-from the violent birth of SEAL Team Six and the aborted Operation Eagle Claw meant to save the hostages in Iran, to key missions in Iraq and Afganistan where the SEALs suffered their worst losses in their fifty year history-and every chapter illustrates why this elite military special operations unit remains the most feared anti-terrorist force in the world. We hear reports on the record from retired SEAL officers including Lt. Cmdr. Richard Marcinko, the founder of SEAL Team Six, and a former Commander at SEAL team Six, Ryan Zinke, and we come away understanding the deep commitment of these military men who put themselves in danger to protect our country and save American lives. In the face of insurmountable odds and the imminent threat of death, they give all to protect those who cannot protect themselves. No matter the situation, on duty or at ease, SEALs never, ever give up. One powerful chapter in the book tells the story of how one Medal of Honor winner saved another, the only time this has been done in US military history. EYES ON TARGET includes these special features: A detailed timeline of events during the Benghazi attack Sample rescue scenarios from a military expert who believes that help could have reached the Benghazi compound in time The US House Republican Conference Interim Progress Report on the events surrounding the September 11, 2012 Terrorist Attacks in Benghazi Through their many interviews and unique access, Scott McEwen and Richard Miniter pull back the veil that has so often concealed the heroism of these patriots. They live by a stringent and demanding code of their own creation, keeping them ready to ignore politics, bureaucracy and-if necessary-direct orders. They share a unique combination of character, intelligence, courage, love of country and what can only be called true grit. They are the Navy SEALs, and they keep their Eyes on Target.

Benghazi, Libya. 9/11/2012. Just over a year after the fall of Gaddafi, and on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, a group of heavily armed Islamic terrorists had their sights set on the U.S. diplomatic and intelligence presence in the city. In the prolonged attack, four Americans died, including the American ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, the Information Officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALs, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, working for the Central Intelligence Agency. Based on confidential eyewitness sources within the intelligence, diplomatic, and military communities, Under Fire is the terrifying account of that night, and of a desperate last stand amid the chaos of rebellion.

تنبه روبرت ينغ بيلتون إلى ظاهرة الجنود المستأجرين في الحرب على الإرهاب حين قابل فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين الذين كانوا يقومون بمهمة سرية على الحدود الباكستانية الأفغانية في خريف عام 2003؛ فعقد بيلتون عزمه على القيام برحلة ملحمية طويلة للولوج في هذا العالم الغامض وكشف أسراره، ليرجع إلينا بفهم مذهل لطريقة استخدام الجنود الخصوصيين. فتعال معنا لتستكشف عالماً ملطخاً بالدماء من الجنود المرتزقة والمقاتلين القبليين من جنوب إفريقية، تموله طغمة غاشمة من أرباب المال. توقف في المنطقة الخضراء في بغداد، والبس درعك الواقية من الرصاص وضع خوذتك على رأسك؛ لكي ترافق فريقاً من المتعاقدين الأمنيين وهم يسيرون بسرعة عالية، وينعطفون بشدة تجنباً للسيارات الملغمة ونيران القناصة وهم في طريقهم لإيصال عملائهم إلى المطار. شارك أصحاب الجيوش الخاصة الأثرياء كأساً من الراح في أحد الفنادق الفخمة، وهم يناقشون أفضل سبل المحافظة على الحياة في مناطق الحرب. امتدت رحلة هذا الكتاب فوق أربع قارات، واستغرقت على مدى ثلاث سنوات، لتأخذنا إلى داخل الحروب القذرة للسي آي إيه؛ وإلى القتل العنيف الذي لقيه المتعاقدون الأمنييون في الفلوجة، إلى الحصار الذي فرض عليهم في النجف والكوت؛ إلى معسكرات تدريب المتعاقدين في جنوب الولايات المتحدة، حيث يتلقى الجنود السابقون من العمليات الخاصة وحتى أفراد الشرطة في المدن الصغيرة تدريباتهم الأساسية في هذا الحقل؛ إلى مؤتمرات ومعارض المتعاقدين حيث يتبادل الحضور قصص مغامراتهم العسكرية وينقاشون مهماتهم القادمة؛ إلى السجون الكئيبة في وسط إفريقية، حيث دفع متعاقدون أمنيّون تحولوا إلى جنود مرتزقة فيها ثمناً باهظاً لقيامهم بمحاولات انقلاب كان مصيرها الإخفاق. لقد شجعت الولايات المتحدة استخدام القطاع الخاص في كل نواحي الحرب على الإرهاب، واضعة المتعاقدين خارج نطاق القانون وقيوده، وبوضوح مذهل لا يتأتى إلا بمعاينة مباشرة، يحلل لنا هذا الكتاب بدقة عالية اللاعبين الأساسيين؛ ولعل أكثر ما يثير القلق في هذا الكتاب هو أنه كشف عن وجود آلاف من المتعاقدين الأمنيين– إضافة إلى مئات غيرهم يدخلون هذا القطاع كل يوم- يحملون رخصة بالقتل، ويعرضون خدماتهم لمن يدفع الثمن الأعلى. العبيكان للنشر

0900 hours, 11th September, 2012. Darkness cloaks the American Embassy in Libya. The flag is flying at half-mast, to commemorate the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks on America. Without warning one hundred heavily armed fighters emerge from the night and blast the Embassy gates asunder. The savage siege of the American Embassy in Libya has begun. The mass of Al Qaeda gunmen surge through the shattered gateway and open fire. Their aim is to kill all Americans based at the Embassy, and to capture their prize, Ambassador J Christopher Stevens, alive. This is a carefully-planned attack, using overwhelming firepower and numbers. The handful of lightly armed defenders stand little chance ... Unless ... On the streets outside the Embassy one man steps out of the shadows. British soldier Sgt Morgan Jones carries with him one Browning pistol, and thirty rounds of ammo - the only weaponry he can lay his hands on amidst the chaos of battle. But he also carries with him a total conviction to rescue his American brothers-in arms, or die trying. Jones knows there’s a US Navy SEAL force based at a secret CIA annex, a short drive away. But will they make it to the Embassy in time, through streets awash with enemy fighters? Only he knows the secret ways in to the complex, and he will never be able to live with himself if he leaves his American brothers hanging. So begins the rescue mission of a lifetime, an epic from which few will emerge unscathed. Lone Warrior is an edge of the seat rollercoaster ride of savagery and courage beyond measure. It is the Black Hawk Down of the 21st Century.

What do you do at work when a hundred crises seem to be happening at the same time? Do you pick just one priority or try to put out every fire? How can you stay composed, figure out what really matters, and act decisively? When former U.S. Navy SEAL sniper Brandon Webb transitioned to civilian life, he struggled to get his first startup business off the ground. He raised millions for his new venture, only to lose it all as problems spiraled out of his control. In the wake of that failure, Webb realized that successful entrepreneurs need a skill he had already mastered: total focus. SEAL snipers define it as the ability to filter out noise and chaos so you can make life-or-death decisions under the extreme conditions of combat. If he could maintain total focus while staring through crosshairs at a man who might (or might not) be an Al Qaeda terrorist, surely he could do the same in the business world. So Webb started over, applying total focus to a new startup, a media company called Hurricane Group. His approach was so effective that in just five years, Hurricane grew to have a staff of over fifty, an audience in the tens of millions, and a valuation of more than $100 million. In this book, Webb teaches us to make better decisions under extreme pressure by emulating the habits of his fellow warriors, as well as other skills he learned on the job and from great friends and business leaders like Solomon Choi of 16 Handles, Matt Meeker of BarkBox, and Betsy Morgan of the Huffington Post and TheBlaze. For instance, you’ll discover: · The difference between total focus and tunnel vision is developing total situational awareness: the ability to spot opportunities and threats without getting distracted from your goal. · You can overcome indecisiveness and hesitancy by accepting violence of action: a decision to move forward with an imperfect plan, knowing that even the best-laid plans go wrong. · Entrepreneurs must learn to embrace the suck, refusing to quit when the going gets brutal, and recognizing that unexpected challenges may reveal your best shot at success. By following the tactics and wisdom of a generation of legendary snipers and business leaders, you’ll find the clarity of mind you need to accomplish your own mission—whatever it takes.

On September 11, 2012, a squad of armed militants in Libya attacked the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, killing U.S. ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other American diplomats. Although the vicious attack was initially reported as a protest against an anti-Islamic video, later evidence suggested that it may have been a coordinated terrorist attack—perhaps even tied to al-Qaeda. This begged the question: Did the White House brush off a terrorist attack in order to save face? Since then, the incident has developed into a full-blown partisan debate over whether the government was involved in a cover-up or not, and worse, whether the attack could have been prevented. The Benghazi Report is the Senate committee’s findings—the culmination of over a year’s worth of investigations and interviews, presented in full. Readers of The Benghazi Report will find many of the revelations shocking. Did the White House manipulate the facts? Why was the disclosure of information so unnecessarily slow? What is the connection between the mysterious deaths of fifteen Libyans who had been assisting the FBI’s investigation and a trail of incompetence left by foreign governments unwilling cooperate? Were the attacks were preventable? Featuring an introduction by bestselling author Roger Stone, this report represents a landmark in the ongoing struggle for more transparency from the U.S. government.

مع وصول العنف في العراق إلى مستويات مقلقة عام 2006، اشتعلت جبهة حرب ثانية على أعلى مستويات إدارة بوش. يأخذ بوب ودوارد قراءه، في كتابه الرابع عن الرئيس جورج بوش، إلى عمق التوترات، والمجادلات السرية، والقنوات الخلفية غير الرسمية، ومشاعر الشك والريبة، والمواقف المصممة العنيدة داخل البيت الأبيض، ووزارة الدفاع (البنتاغون)، ووزارة الخارجية، ووكالات الاستخبارات، ومقر القيادة العسكرية الأمريكية في العراق. تصف هذه الرواية المثيرة، الفريدة في حميميتها وتفاصيلها، لرئيس يخوض الحرب، حقبةً من الهم والغم والغموض وعدم اليقين داخل الحكومة الأمريكية امتدت من عام 2006 إلى منتصف عام 2008. ويقدم الكتاب وصفاً شاملاً للجهود الحثيثة التي بذلها الجنرال ديفيد بترايوس وما واجهه من صعوبات وصراعات، وهو الذي تولى القيادة في أثناء أحلك حقبة في الحرب وأشدها عنفاً. ويكشف كيف كانت الاختراقات التي تحققت في العمليات الحربية والرصد والمراقبة السبب وراء معظم التقدم المنجز، وذلك مع انحسار موجة العنف في العراق في منتصف عام 2007. التقى بوب ودوارد باللاعبين المهمين كلهم، وحصل على عشرات من الوثائق التي لم تنشر من قبل، وأمضى مدة ثلاث ساعات تقريباً في مقابلات حصرية مع الرئيس بوش. أما النتيجة فكانت سرداً تاريخياً مدهشاً استُخلص من المصادر الأصلية للحقبة الممتدة بين منتصف عام 2006، حين أدرك البيت الأبيض أن الإستراتيجية لا تعمل بنجاح، مروراً بعام 2007، حين صدر قرار بإرسال ثلاثين ألف جندي إضافي إلى العراق، حتى منتصف عام 2008، حين أصبحت الحرب صدعاً ونقطة ضعف في الانتخابات الرئاسية. يتصدى كتاب (الحرب الداخلية) بطريقة مباشرة للأسئلة المتعلقة بالقيادة، لا في زمن الحرب فقط، بل فيما يتصل بالأسلوب الذي نُحكم عبره والأخطار الكامنة في السرية غير المبررة. العبيكان للنشر

"State of Denial feels all the more outraged for its measured, nonpartisan tones and relentless reporting. It is nothing less than a watershed.... The full story of the Iraq War will be told by historians....This book...will be at the top of their shelves as they proceed to the altar of judgment." -- Ted Widmer, The Washington Post Book World "Serious, densely, even exhaustively reported, and a real contribution to history in that it gives history what it most requires, first-person testimony....This is a primer on how the executive branch of the United States works, or rather doesn't work, in the early years of the 21st century." -- Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal "Never-before-reported nuggets in every chapter....It offers the most revealing in-the-room glimpse of the Bush administration that we have so far." -- Walter Shapiro, "State of Denial is brimming with vivid details about White House meetings, critical phone calls, intelligence reports, and military affairs....Impressively detailed and eye-opening revelations about the Bush administration's handling of the Iraq war and its aftermath." -- Chuck Leddy, The Boston Globe "Woodward's book is packed with details about the gulf between the information the administration had and the picture it presented." -- USA Today "Woodward's trilogy on the Bush administration at war is essential, and compelling, reading." -- Foreign Affairs
