The Simon & Schuster subsidiary Threshold Editions announced Friday that it was pulling the controversial Benghazi source’s account of the 2012 terror attack, titled The Embassy House, and requesting that stores return their copies to the publisher. The decision was reportedly made “in light of information that has been brought to our attention” since the book was published just a week ago. The account of the night of the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that Davies shared in the book, as well as on CBS’s 60 Minutes, has been called into question after a conflicting FBI report on Davies’s experience that night was leaked to the press.

"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light of information that has been brought to our attention since the initial publication of The Embassy House, we have withdrawn from publication and sale all formats of this book, and are recommending that booksellers do the same," Threshold Edition spokesperson Jennifer Robinson said in a statement. "We also are notifying accounts that they may return the book to us."

I previously wrote that CBS had failed to disclose that the CBS owned Simon & Schuster was publishing a book by Davies about his Benghazi experience. Both Jeff Fager, the chairman of CBS News and executive producer of "60 Minutes," and correspondent Lara Logan have said they regretted not including a disclosure.
