His right leg was severed. I watched him bleed out from his femoral artery. It was shocking. It’s pixelated, and it doesn’t really look real.

There’s a level of intimacy that goes with every action in war. It’s completely psychological. You hear the hum of a computer. You don’t feel the missile coming off the rail; you watch it. All the drone operators, they get a bad rap. It’s not a video game… It is real life, and these people need just as much help.Ex-drone operator Brandon Bryant shares with CNN his experience of being ordered to conduct a drone attack for the U.S.
Tonight, 60 Minutes interviewed a security officer who was present the night of the Benghazi attack. The details of what really happened that fateful night are chilling and incredibly important for every American to hear.
The report is about 15 minutes long, but I highly encourage you to watch in its entirety.
Here’s the video:
The White House has repeatedly downplayed Benghazi as a “phony scandal,” but tonight’s report further underlines the necessity for a special prosecutor to investigate the White House and the State Department’s repeated dismissal of the warning sings and refusal to send help the night of the attack. America must know why.
This ‘60 Minutes’ report last night was phenomenal. Love Logan’s work and what was covered was really compelling, important information on the Benghazi debate. Also: They didn’t even mention Hillary Clinton’s name in the segment.
