MIAMI — Michael Bay's "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" is filled with bloody battles but the film also features modern day miracles that will impact faith-based audiences, according to the Christian soldiers whose true stories inspired the film.
Four years ago, former Marines Mark "Oz" Geist, John "Tig" Tiegen and former Army Ranger Kris "Tanto" Paranto were three of the six men assigned to work as security contractors in Benghazi, Libya. On Sept. 11, 2012, staff at the U.S. diplomatic compound and CIA Annex were under siege by terrorists, and when they called U.S. government officials for help those requests were denied by a CIA base chief named "Bob" who ordered the contractors to "stand down," impeding any rescue attempt.
During one "13 Hours" scene Pablo Schreiber, who plays Tanto in the film, says he believes God will take care of him in the midst of the attack. The man who inspired the character says he is grateful that he could shed light on God in a blockbuster film directed by Bay.
