NEW YORK (AP) Publication has been halted for a disputed book about the attack last year on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.
Threshold Editions announced Friday that it's suspending Dylan Davies' "The Embassy House: The Explosive Eyewitness Account of the Libyan Embassy Siege by the Soldier Who Was There" after serious doubts emerged about whether Davies had witnessed the 2012 raid.
Earlier Friday, CBS News said it had been misled by Davies, a source for a "60 Minutes" broadcast on the attack that aired Oct. 27.
Davies' book had been written under the pseudonym "Sergeant Morgan Jones." It was published Oct. 29 and ranked No. 4,931 on Amazon.com as of midday Friday.
Threshold is a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster that has also released books by Dick Cheney and Glenn Beck.
