13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

Revealing mistake: When a contractor fires a grenade at an enemy technical, the truck visibly explodes and moves upwards before the (most likely) CGI projectile hits it. (01:02:00)

Factual error: In the scene after the attack begins and military assets are spinning up to go help, when they briefly show the SOC guys loaded into a transport aircraft they all look operator-ish and have high cut fast helmets, but are carrying M16A4's with no optical devices mounted. I don't know of any SOCOM units that wear fast helmets but are issued A4's without an ACOG, ELCAN, aimpoint, etc. (00:15:00 - 01:25:00)

Factual error: When the analysts at the CIA Annex are discussing where the GRS operators are, the map they are looking at is not the actual Benghazi compound.

Tyrone 'Rone' Woods: That roadblock was run by Ansar al-Sharia. It's not just tribal groups of freedom fighters anymore.
Bob: If you have useful intel, Tyrone, put it in a memo. You guys, bunk here. But you're not CIA. You're hired help. Act the part.

Kris 'Tanto' Paronto: I mean seriously guys. If the consoluate ordered a fucking pizza it would've been there by now.

Tyrone 'Rone' Woods: You're not giving orders anymore. You're taking them. You're in my world now.

More quotes from 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi


Question: I have a few questions about the different groups in the film. 1. I looked up 17th Feb, or February 17th Martyr's Brigade, on Wikipedia, and I noticed that an ally that was listed on Wiki was Ansar-Al-Sharia. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Ansar-Al-Sharia the current ISIS/ISIL that we're fighting today? 2. Was the group the soldiers were fighting in the film ISIS? 3. Who was the group of soldiers that saved them all at the end of the film?
