Benghazi, 13 Hours, and Shane Iversen, US Army Special Force Interview
In what might be considered a minor miracle, Hollywood has managed to tell the story of the Benghazi attacks on September 11, 2012 without making excuses nor apologies.
The movie “13 Hours; the Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” details the failure of United States leadership to protect our ambassador and the heroism of six brave men whose action saved many lives.
We are pleased to have as our guest, Shane Iversen, a retired Special Forces Team Sergeant.
Having operated in the same environment and worked with many of the men who were in Benghazi, Shane comes to the table with a unique point of view.

CSAT MTT (Mobile Training Team) is a satellite company of CSAT (Combat Shooting and Tactics). CSAT MTT is based out of the DFW Metroplex area and offers the highest quality of tactical firearms training based on the courses and programs developed and taught by Paul Howe, MSG (Ret) and CSAT.
Our mission is to deliver the same high quality of firearms training that is offered at CSAT in Nacogdoches to your location or host agency. Our team of cadre instructors are prepared to travel to your agency location or ranges and bring CSAT to you!
Here is a Press Release from Paul Howe…
I started CSAT over 16 years ago with the desire to give back to Law Enforcement and other government organizations. I started with Advanced Hostage Rescue classes and my schedule got busier. I used the money I made on the road to buy the initial CSAT property of 220 acres, the 110 and the final piece was the barracks.
Classes have evolved and I started doing more civilian classes. With the busy pace of building lesson plans, infrastructure, maintenance, scheduling and finances, I have grown older and it is now time to consolidate my time into what I enjoy, that being teaching at CSAT in Nacogdoches. I will from time to time conduct training on the road as I have built many relationships in the U.S. over the years.
With this concept, I like to help other people get started in the business. I had considered selling CSAT, but decided it was not the time or was it in my best interest. Instead of selling I have agreed to let a group, CSAT MTT (Mobile Training Team), start a small satellite or franchise. They will be their own entity and will use my lesson plans and teach under their own name and insurance. I will be around to check quality control. They will be based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area.
CSAT, MTTs initial focus will be to teach firearms training and some advanced civilian classes. Down the road their focus will expand as their capabilities and experience grow. Instructors from CSAT, MTT will have completed my Tactical Pistol/Rifle Instructor course along with my Shoot House Instructor course.
If you have any questions, feel free to shoot them to me. I wish CSAT MTT a great year of training.
