From Booklist

On September 11, 2012, the eleventh anniversary of 9/11, a heavily armed group attacked the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and another diplomat. Timmerman argues that the attack was the result of a clandestine Obama administration deal to sell arms to Libyan rebels. Timmerman explores the administration’s Middle East policy, including its support for the Arab Spring effort to bring democracy to intransigent regimes. He contends that the administration threw its support behind the Muslim Brotherhood and others to overthrow pro-U.S. regimes in Libya, Tunisia, and Egypt. He contends that Obama and Stevens were too naive in believing their diplomatic efforts could bring peaceful transition in Libya. Written as a fast-paced thriller, Timmerman’s account, containing charges of a cover-up, is certain to continue the controversy and conspiracy theories about the attack, which the Obama administration first reported as a riot in reaction to an Internet movie offensive to Muslims. --Vanessa Bush

Review

“This book is an excellent read. In fascinating detail, it explores avenues and answers questions that have not previously been pursued. Now the question is: will the Obama administration and Congress finally provide answers through a select committee on Benghazi?” (Lieutenant Colonel DENNIS B. HANEY, USAF (Ret.))

Wow! Timmerman exhibits superb investigative journalism to seemingly finally penetrate the lies, distortions, stone walling and coverups by the administration that have prevented a clear view of the who, what, why about the ongoing (almost two years!) Benghazi scandal. Clarity emerges from his sensational new material and claims. These need to be substantiated by independent means, of course. There is a wealth of new material and sources that should be accessible to a Congress with subpoena power and a willingness to pursue the truth. This new information could well topple the powerful, change politicians dreams for more power, and even conceivably send some to prison. Those folks will read this book no doubt. More importantly, American voters who are ultimately responsible for the actions of the politicians we have elected, and suffer the consequences, should read this book.

But this is about MUCH more than just Benghazi. Recall that the Ben Rhodes email of 9/14/12 (Subject: Re PREP call with Susan Saturday at 4 pm) and released in 4/17/14 through Freedom of Information Act request establishes the goal "To underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video and not in a broader failure of policy." Timmerman unmasks the broader policy failures and how Benghazi is but one of the consequences.

Timmerman sums up the significance very well:
"We know one thing for sure: The story concocted by the Obama administration on the night of the attack, of a demonstration caused by an Internet movie that went out of control, bears no resemblance to the truth. It's not even close. So, why all the lies?
No Americans died during Watergate or as a result of Iran-Contra. That is what makes the attacks of September 11, 2012, in Libya the deepest, the darkest, and the dirtiest political scandal of recent American history."

Format: Hardcover
Dark Forces: The Truth About What Happened in Benghazi by veteran investigative author Kenneth R. Timmerman is a gripping expose, replete with evidence of deception and cover up about who perpetrated the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans; Ambassador Chris Stevens, communications aide Sean Smith, ex-Navy Seals CIA-contractors, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty on 9/11/2012. Dark Forces presents a thoroughly researched investigative dossier on the events behind the crime that took the lives of four valiant Americans who perished in the attack that night. Timmerman discloses a major cover-up by the Obama Administration of possible violations of the National Security Act of 1947 related to covert activities in the Libyan rebellion and overthrow of the Qadaffi regime. Those Administration actions opened a literal Pandora’s box spawning dangerous illicit arms trade with jihadist forces in Africa, the Middle East and even Afghanistan. Based on his research, Timmerman believes the Administration engaged in a purposeful diversion about the real facts to deflect inquiries during a critical phase of the 2012 Presidential campaign. That cover up began unraveling with a late night news release by the White House accusing a US made internet video of offending Muslim sensibilities triggering the planned Benghazi terrorist attack. It has subsequently been revealed that former Secretary of State Clinton told the President that the draft statement“ was not credible” nevertheless acquiescing to the deception.
That cover up by the Administration may not be lost on South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy, an experienced former federal prosecutor. His appointment to Chair the House Select Committee on Benghazi was announced on May 2, 2014.

This book sets aside the media initiated political "gotcha" distractions and focuses on the crucial questions of "What happened here? Who were/are the players? What are the ramifications for the war on terror?" A superb investigative journalist reports on and explains the larger context of what happened in Benghazi, i.e., the context of the Middle East warriors and their ongoing fight to subdue their own region and the world to Sharia law under Islamic rule. The surprising answer to "who" murdered four Americans in Benghazi is not one that the Islamic Terrorism Deniers want to hear, as it calls into grave question the current secret dealmaking with Iran and other Islamic fundamentalist actors. Buy this book. Read this book. Share this book. And vote in November for candidates who understand reality and America's grave danger if we fail to wake up.

Just wanted to weigh in on the issue concerning Iranian Quds force involvement in the Benghazi attack as described in Ken Timmerman's book "Dark Forces". As a a retired Naval Spec Ops officer I been involved with the Special Operations/Intel community for over 35 years and at least in our network we all respect the professionalism and credability of Mr. Timmermann.

Much of what happens in the Middle East is never as it appears. It is an onion, peel off one layer, and there is another one underneath, pick up a rock and there is a snake under it. Double and triple dealings, hidden agendas, and deception are an accepted part of the culture to achieve one's goal. Many times Americans are caught in the middle, with all sides willing to let Americans people die for their cause. But as the old saying goes "the road to hell is paved with good intentions" His book peels back those hidden agendas in a fast paced and well researched manner which reads like a spy novel.

I think it is fair to say that very few in the community would dismiss out of hand the reasonable assumption that Iran was involved in the Benghazi attack, through the use of proxies, and well trained operatives, which is not uncommon practice. Mr. Timmerman presents documented evidence of Iran's involvement. It is a logical assumption considering the ample evidence that weapons were being shipped from Libya to rebels in Syria and that Iran as Assad's ally would desire to halt the pipeline and extract some payback.

Intelligence analysis is not a court of law where guilt has to be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Many experienced individuals are convinced Mr.
