Article: Will the real life story of incredible bravery, and the extreme courage of warriors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods be lost just because of Machiavellian politics?
Updates as more information is coming through. Even if the true story of their heroism casts an uncomfortable light of truth upon the lies told by President Obama and his administration we will tell it. They deserve it.
President Obama implied, quite intentionally, in his Weekly Address that Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were part of Ambassador Christopher Stevens security detail:
Glen and Tyrone had each served America as Navy SEALs for many years, before continuing their service providing security for our diplomats in Libya. They died as they lived their lives defending their fellow Americans, and advancing the values that all of us hold dear.
-President Obama (Weekly address)
Sounds good, the only problem is this statement is a total fabrication. It was worded to imply Ambassador Stevens had more security than actually existed. Yes, they were both former Navy SEALs, but neither Tyrone nor Glen were part of the Ambassadors official security detail. No. The truth is: they heard the attack, they heard the gunfire, and despite the danger to themselves they rushed into the breach taking weapons from the frightened Libyan security officials to help protect the American Consulate, Ambassador Stevens and his embassy aide Sean Smith.
Both Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were under no obligation to assist, protect or defend Stevens. They could have bugged out, they didnt .. They ran into the breach. It was, and is, an important enough distinction such that two U.S. officials quickly wanted to tell the truth. It was, and is, an important enough distinction such that two U.S. officials quickly wanted to tell the truth. They told the Guardian:
[...] they feared the Obama administrations scant description of the episode left a misimpression that the two ex-Navy SEALs might have been responsible for the ambassadors personal safety or become separated from him.
Woods and Doherty werent part of the detail, nor were they personally responsible for the ambassadors security, but they stepped into the breach when the attacks occurred and their actions saved others lives and they shouldnt be lumped in with the security detail, ..
According to what scant actual information is available the former seal team members, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, appear to have been in Libya because they were contracted by another intelligence office, probably the CIA, to track down the missing surface-to-air missiles from the initial rebel uprising.
During the Gadaffi overthrow massive stockpiles of Libyan weapons including MANPADS and other surface to air missiles were looted from the military storage facilities. Estimates put the number of missing missiles around 20,000.
It appears Doherty and Woods were in Libya to track down those weapons. As a consequence of their visit they were crashed at an annex to the US consulate grounds using it as a safe place to meet, coordinate, and evaluate their ongoing intel. Their location was approximately a half mile from the main consulate compound area.

I know that Ambassador Stevens' body was molested before and after he died and that the MSM isn't reporting this even though European and a Lebanese news sources have.
I have reseached the last three days the "beheading" of the other three victims and am getting nowhere with how they died.
My important and stunning question: If it is true that these men, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were tortured and "beheaded" wouldn't that really "outrage the nation" against Obama and Hillary?
And given the pleads for more security by Ambassador Stevens and others US government personnel in Benghazi Libya, and the sworn testimony of the "almost real time" viewing of this violent "planned terrorist attack", wouldn't this event, the WH and Administration's lies, and lastly the assault on Americans on American soil (the beheadings and the consulate) be grounds for impeachment of Obama? How can we investigated whether any or all of these men were beheaded?
Real men do not do that.
I still don't know why enlistment lines weren't miles long for The Nam and 911, but they weren't. There's always this question about the character of those who don't enlist you know.
These brave men have no idea what a true sacrifice they may have made for their country. I’m convinced if they had not intervened, The Fraud’s plot to kidnap the ambassador and ride in as a hero and arrange his release, (about 2 weeks before the election)would have been accomplished.
But by opening fire and trying to defend the ambassador and his people, they unintentionally upset the plan. The kidnappers panicked, the crowd revolted and Stevens and others were butchered to death.
This was the October surprise that Obambi and his thugs had set up. So if in fact Romney wins, these men may have been the difference. If the kidnapping and rescue plot had gone on as planned, The Fraud probably wins.
If they were beheaded it would explain why Ms. smith was not allowed to see her sons body.
Do we have any confirmation that those were actually the bodies of Amb Stevens and the others in those caskets?
Hey, with this administration, especially Obama, given his true religion, you just never know.
The condition of their bodies was ‘not optimal’ for viewing. Probably beheaded and a certain other area obviously violated.
What you wrote was not only touching but would be the “saving grace” if it plays out as you imagine. Their sacrifice would save the nation. Thanks.
You’re so right! They were more “real Americans” (and more honorable) than their President will ever be ( born in Hawaii or not :> )
I didn’t know that. I have read that she was told by Panetta and Obama she would get answers to all her questions and she hasn’t hear anything since the casket came off the plane. Thanks for the info about her not seeing her son’s body.
That would certainly explain why everyone in the watches and the situation room watched everything go down near real time for 6 hours and did nothing.
Can they really do that? Not let the Mother view her own son’s body. They don’t OWN the body. I dare those SOB’s to tell me that.
Have you ever seen a military/government employment contract?
I was thinking that too.. In normal circumstances it would be to spare the mother of shock. But the 0bama regime isn’t ‘normal circumstances’.. You can bet they were afraid WHAT SHE’D SEE WOULD GET LEAKED TO THE PRESS. You are right though.. The gov’t has no rights to HER son’s body.
Dana Millbank of the Washington Post of all sources, wrote about a CIA rapid response team of up to 12 men, that were conveniently not on the site the night of the attack. He was trying to shift blame from the state department unto the CIA.
As far as I’m concerned he’s providing more foundation to the idea that the attack was a staged kidnap/rescue mission. Why on the anniversary of 9-11 in a hostile nation, would the CIA security detail stand down ??? There was to be little interference, except these two Navy seals messed things up for the Fraud and his thugs.
The mother expressed her regret at not being able to view her son in the casket but was told that it was too late, the casket had been closed and was in transit.
Was his wife allowed to see his body?
Perfect! “two thumbs up!”
That scenario makes a lot of sense. You’re both talking about trading the Blind Sheik for a kidnapped Ambassador Stevens?
