Kenneth Timmerman describes himself as an 'investigative reporter, NYT best-selling author and witness to the persecuted church'.


Timmerman 'has spent his career investigating the dark side of national security'.

Over the past three decades he has interviewed dissidents behind the Iron Curtain, covered numerous Middle East wars, interviewed suicide bombers, debriefed defectors from Iranian intelligence organizatons, and covered the plight of Christians persecuted for their faith.
His latest book, Dark Forces: the Truth About What Happened in Benghazi, rips apart the spin and the lies surrounding the September 11, 2012 attacks that cost the lives of four brave Americans. "If you want to know what the Obama Administration does not want you to know about Benghazi, then Dark Forces is a must read," writes Richard F. (Dick) Brauer Jr., Col. USAF (Ret), Founder, Special Operations Speaks.
