President Obama and his administration lied again and again.
“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)
Seals yes. Security NO. Security was repeatedly requested from Benghazi and Libya. The Obama administration FAILED to RESPOND and provide adequate security!
Will the real life story of incredible bravery, and the extreme courage of warriors Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods be lost just because of torqued politics?
What really happened September 11? Neither Tyrone nor Glen Doherty were part of the Ambassadors official security detail. The security teams had been withdrawn.
The truth is Tyrone and Glen both heard the gunfire, and despite the danger to themselves they rushed into the breach taking weapons from frightened Libyan security officials to help protect the American Consulate, Ambassador Stevens and his embassy aide Sean Smith.
“Woods and Doherty…stepped into the breach when the attacks occurred and their actions saved others lives — and they shouldn’t 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 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 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.
They were inside an annex building when the main consulate complex came under attack from the Libyan al-Qaeda terrorists. They heard the distant shots and responded to a call for help from the compound itself. Both Woods and Doherty evaluated the assassination attempt, and immediately took up arms to defend Ambassador Stevens.
Their heroism is incredible when you consider what they were facing. Doherty and Woods reached the main compound of the Consulate and evacuated approximately 20 employees. Unfortunately, Ambassador Steven’s aide Sean Smith was already dead when they arrived. Woods and Doherty fought through the firefight, and took the consulate employees back to the annex building where again they came under another wave of attacks.
Between the initial firefight at the Main Consulate, and at the annex building, for over two hours they were able to fight back against approximately 200 al-Qaeda terrorist,who pre-planned and coordinated the attack to occur in two stages.
The second wave of attacks at the annex brought even more firepower upon them. Yet they held their position providing time for the 20 consulate employees to be rescued. In total for over two hours they held off upwards of 200 attackers, under heavy fire from RPGs, mortars, and at least one 23mm Anti Aircraft gun firing on their position(s) around the consulate grounds and the annex building.
The heroism of Doherty and Woods must be told. They deserve it. The truth represents a risk to the manipulated narrative of the White House and State Department. It will be up to fellow patriots to keep the pressure on and force the truth to the surface.
These men died while defending US interests because they were brave patriots who put country ahead of self.
Those left behind declare, “We will not let their courage be hidden or diminished. I promise to do all I can to keep their story in the spotlight and provide their family the full measure of appreciation for their bravery. We will not forget, and will keep fighting for the recognition they deserve.”
Both Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty could have bugged out. They didn’t…..but they ran boldly into the Benghazi breach.
Patriots deserve respect. Quietly…
one by one former Seal team buddies firmly pounded the Tridents into to the mahogany as they paid their respect. Two handed the plank to mom, choked back tears, and kissed her on the cheek.
These patriots will be missed by us all. Never forget the patriots’ price! Liberty is free but not cheap. Truth liberates. Obama foreign policy, fails!
