If you want to hear Co-Director Buzz Jacobs' vision for Benghazi 9.11, you can check him out on Fox News and Lars Larson's national radio show.
"My niece’s husband, Sean Smith, was murdered along with Ambassador Stevens, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. The effect on our family has been long lasting, and the lack of truth and accountability has been a continuous frustration...I believe that the need for accountability about Benghazi is not a Republican issue or a Democratic issue, but a truth issue. I believe that the film 'Benghazi 9.11' will assist in that process and will be a fine tribute to the memories of these four brave Americans." - Michael K. Ingmire, via Letter
HELP US PROVE THAT AMERICA WANTS THE TRUE STORY OF BENGHAZI TO BE TOLD!
Dear Potential Backers:
Are you outraged that the media gave President Obama a pass on Benghazi?
Does it make you angry that the American people haven’t heard from any of the 33 survivors of the attack?
Can anyone say the story of Benghazi has been honestly and truthfully told?
Senator James Inhofe said “this is going to go down as the biggest cover-up in American history.” And, he’s right. That is, unless we do something about it.
Well, here’s your chance. It’s Benghazi 9.11, the movie.
Benghazi 9.11 is the story they don't want you to hear. It's the story the mainstream media didn't tell you. It's the movie they do not want made.
We think the truth must be told. That’s why we started this project. But, we need your help to cross the finish line.
This is an independent movie. We’re not being backed by the Hollywood machine. Hollywood would never make a movie that paints their beloved Obama in a negative light with facts and truth.
Unfortunately, making a movie is an expensive endeavor. Will you please make an immediate contribution to ensure the true story of Benghazi is told?
Thank you for your consideration.
Buzz Jacobs & Doug Brown (Directors, Benghazi 9.11)
BENGHAZI 9.11 is a film targeted for theatrical release and Video-on-Demand (VOD) distribution. Through interviews of key officials, reporters, and security experts with the background, knowledge, and relationships to speak with authority about the events before, on, and after September 11, 2012, we will document the true story of Benghazi 9.11 and closely examine whether a cover-up is taking place.

“Assuming we don’t die tonight...”
Those were among the last words ever typed by Sean Smith, an Air Force veteran working on temporary assignment as an information management officer in Libya. Unfortunately, Mr. Smith’s words served as a tragic prediction, as he and three other brave Americans (Ambassador Chris Stevens, former Navy Seal Glen Doherty and former Navy Seal Tyrone Woods) died on 9/11/12 in Benghazi, Libya when they were attacked by terrorists.
These four men were patriots. They volunteered to serve America in a dangerous place, and were undoubtedly willing to accept the risks associated with their service. They didn’t seek fortune or fame in return, but they probably assumed the United States government would come to their aid if and when it was needed. Sadly, a decision was made to leave them stranded on that fateful night. The result: four dead American patriots murdered by terrorists.
What’s almost as tragic as their death is the cover-up that followed during the weeks after 9/11/12. The Obama Administration refused to provide the American people with many key facts. Instead, they played a lengthy game of cover-up in the days before the presidential election. What began with a denial that the attack was conducted by terrorists continued with weeks of lies and deception in an effort to hide the President’s involvement and any errant decisions made by senior Administration officials.
Over 7 months have passed and critical questions about Benghazi have yet to be answered. The public has not heard from the survivors. The government has denied Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests. And, the media doesn't seem to care.
We're on a quest to tell the true story of BENGHAZI 9.11. Join us on this important journey. The truth must be told.
NATIONAL LEADERS PARTICIPATING IN FILM
We have already interviewed nine subjects for this documentary, including Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Marco Rubio, three of the governmental leaders pushing the Obama Administration for answers. We have also interviewed the former Commander of the USS Cole, who survived the 2000 Al-Qaeda attack on the Navy ship he commanded. Additionally, we have interviewed experts from The Heritage Foundation, Weekly Standard, Daily Caller, and Media Research Center.
Our goal is to interview additional subjects for this film, including Democrats, family members and friends of those killed in Benghazi, additional journalists who covered the Benghazi attack, Libyan leaders, and other military and intelligence experts.

HOW WILL YOUR MONEY BE USED?
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT (100%) of your contributions to this effort will be used to pay for filming, editing, producing, and marketing the documentary.
ONE HUNDRED PERCENT (100%) of your funds will be used to tell the true story of Benghazi. We'll tell America the story the media won't tell. We'll make sure Americans know all the facts.
The BENGHAZI 9.11 documentary is an ambitious project, covering an evolving and sensitive subject in which many are greatly interested. The project will require substantial additional research and travel to interview governmental leaders, military and intelligence experts, family and friends of the victims, and members of the media. Such an effort requires a significant investment of time and funds.
As mentioned above, we have already invested the tens of thousands of dollars of our own money, time, and resources to begin filming, create a movie trailer, develop a website, and begin to build a fan-base.
RISKS AND CHALLENGES
The BENGHAZI 9.11 movie project faces the usual risks of film and TV production. We are offsetting those risks with production insurance, contingency plans, and a production team with decades of experience.
One of the biggest risks with any documentary film is securing good interview subjects. Since we have already filmed several of the most recognized leaders on Benghazi, we believe that risk has been mitigated. However, it is possible that we could encounter future production delays due to availability or access to other key interview subjects.
Distribution is always a challenge with low-budget films, but we intend to partner with experienced companies to help us distribute the movie as widely as possible.
With respect to rewards fulfillment, we will work diligently with professional partners to get all your DVDs, digital downloads, and other items delivered safely and on schedule.
We'll be sending regular updates about our progress to all backers, so you’ll be the first to know about what’s going on.
