Two former Navy SEALs were identified Thursday as the third and fourth victims of the attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya this week that also killed the U.S. ambassador.

U.S. officials and family members identified the men as Glen Doherty, 42, a native of Winchester, Mass., and Tyrone Woods, 41. Details of how they died haven't been made public.

No wonder the press isn't mentioning them. Until now we hadn't even heard their names.

Did you have a good time in Vegas, Mr. President?

The one ordered the hit in retaliation for that Seal book

Obama has been more deadly for SEALS than Osama ever was

Well, technically, at the risk of sounding like an a-hole, there was that Chinook that was taken down by an RPG, the helo that was going to rescue Michael Murphy and his fireteam.

Odd that the Seals would be killed unless they were set up/ Like by our State Dept and Obama.

“Details of how they died haven’t been made public.”

And I seriously doubt that the details of the ambassador’s autopsy will be revealed. It’s been reported that he was sodomized before he was murdered. It’s also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered. Why? To slice his innards to shreds, and to add to the excruciating pain. I truly pray that I’m wrong!

Ever notice how studiously they avoid the nature of the jobs of these other guys?

Cuz Hillary’s war on khadaffi had the effect of releasing 20,000 SA-24 grinch anti-aircraft missiles onto the black-market and it was the job of these guys to try and get back some of them.

Twenty THOUSAND AA MISSILES.

Well, that sucks. These guys probably thought they had a nice easy twilight tour to finish out a fine career. Damn.

With the reports of no bullets authorized for the Marine guards at the Embassy, I bet that is why they were not previously identified.

The State Department Liars have had time to put their stories together and now they want us to swallow a big humping lie again.

2 Seals dead and no mention of huge Libyan casualties could only be explained if the Marines were not armed. Even X-Marines, some say government contractor looking for shoulder fired weapons.

My bet is that this is all smoke screen to cover up the ineptness of Obozo’s administration and this disaster.

“It’s also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered. Why? To slice his innards to shreds, and to add to the excruciating pain.”

He was. There was a video floating around of that part of the murder, going around third world blog sites. Some teenaged mouthbreather slid a narrow, stiletto type blade about 8 inches long and a half inch wide up Qaddaffi’s bum. The intention was to slit and create the pain you described. Ironically, this murdered ambassador had an active hand in creating the chaos that led to Qaddaffi’s overthrow. Unintended consequences to be sure.

You know, one question occurs to me.

Were these former SEALS employees of Academi (a.k.a. Xe Services, a.k.a. Blackwater)?

Back in the Bush years, Blackwater was the byword for "mercenary" profiteering in the Lamestream Media.

To save your world you asked this man to die:

Found a relatively tame version:

These are the people the US State Department, the UN, and NATO backed. Seems like our pet vipers are not so tame as the smart Beltway people thought.

Good point, but as civilians it doesn’t matter which company they worked for, the media is supposed to be calling them mercenaries and what ever else they used to use during the Bush years.

I guess even “private contractors” is out now, the article did label them “private security specialists for the U.S. government” which sounds like the left has softened their tone.

Plugs Biden didn’t out them as Seals, so it must not be important.

It is almost CERTAIN that the other State Dept. Employees killed with Stevens were Professional Soldiers, AKA, “Mercenaries”.

ALL such contracting is taken care of through State, often they’re called, “DOS Contractors”.

With Hillary and Hussein at the helm I’m sure there is Apollo kinds of pressure to allllways term them something other than mercs.

Is that the one that was overloaded and on a slow moving helo??? The one that was a stuffed goose waiting to be shot down with 24 (or there abouts) SEALs in it??? I attribute that set of deaths to the jerk in the WH and his inept handling of all things

What's raised in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas.

I don't know why the Kenyan jackass thinks that he needs to raise a lot of money. If you go to the Yahoo homepage, Barry Soetoro or whatever his name is has already won in a landslide and Romeny and Ryan are going to be arrested for war crimes or something. The fags at Yoohoo! are on a roll for their boy.
