Read what others are saying about Dark Forces...

"In order to understand the dynamics of the Arab Spring as well as the Obama Administration’s policies leading to our involvement in the Libyan revolution, Ken Timmerman provides a well-researched history of significant events that resulted in the Benghazi tragedy.  As a result of his many sources, he is able to present clear insight on the illicit arms transfer to Syrian rebels.  Further, according to his key informant, new intelligence is provided on who was behind the attack on the Benghazi Special Mission Compound, as well as why the massive cover-up by the Obama Administration."
—James A. Lyons, Jr., Admiral, USN (ret), President and CEO LION Associates, LLC, member of the Citizens Committee on Benghazi

 "Benghazi will go down as the greatest government cover-up in history - bigger than the Pentagon Papers, Iran-Contra, and Watergate. Ken Timmerman's investigation exposes the dark underbelly of this scandal, as well as the disastrous state of our national security after years of President Obama downsizing and degrading our capabilities."
- Senator Jim Inhofe (R, OK), ranking member, Senate Armed Services Committee
"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 committete on Benghazi?
- Lieutenant Colonel Dennis B. Haney, USAF (Ret)., Special Operations Speaks.
