S&S Pulls Benghazi Book
« on: November 11, 2013, 02:50:32 PM »

After allegations were made about the legitimacy of the author's account of the attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya last September, Simon & Schuster has halted publication and sale of The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Solider Who Was There, by Sgt. Morgan Jones and Damien Lewis.

"In light of information that has been brought to our attention since the initial publication of The Embassy House, we have withdrawn from publication and sale all formats of this book, and are recommending that booksellers do the same," said Jennifer Robinson, spokesperson for the book's publisher, Threshold Editions, an imprint of S&S. "We also are notifying accounts that they may return the book to us."

Valjar must be pleased. I am thinking the admin had something to do with this 60 minutes ordeal.
