Two Former Navy SEALs Killed in Benghazi

Two former member of the elite Navy SEALs forces were killed in Benghazi, Libya. They were killed during the attack on the United States consulate, the same attack that also killed the U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens.

The two former Navy SEALs were working security and protection and they died protecting their colleagues, Hillary Clinton said on Thursday in a press release.

The two former Navy SEALs served in Afghanistan and Iraq and they are Tyrone S. Woods and Glen Doherty.


Doherty was one of the two people who were killed after the Benghazi personnel was evacuated into another building of the consulate.

According to ABC News, Glen Doherty, 42 years old, was working in Libdya for the State Department, and he was part of a mission to recover some missile launchers that went missing after the fall of former Libya dictator Muammar Gaddafi.

Ever since 2010 Tyrone S. Woods was protecting the United States diplomatic members in “dangerous positions” in Central America and the Middle East. He was married and he was the father of three children.

Besides these former Navy SEALs members and the U.S. Ambassador, the attack also killed a former U.S. Air Force member, Sean Smith, who was in charge of the consulate’s communications services.

Other three Americans were wounded in the attack but they stable right now.

The new prime minister of Libya, Mustafa Abu Shagur, announced that they made important progress in the arrest of the ones responsible for the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi.

    I salute the Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty for their heroic efforts which caused them to give their lives to save their USA Embassy colleagues. Our brave fallen heroes are to be commended for their colossal bravery and their success —apparently 29 people survived what was going to be a massacre As I stated before in the blog that I did on the ABC Website Nov 1st 2012, knowing the mentality of an adversary is crucial.Apparently, Britain thought that the conditions in Libya were too dangerous for their embassy to remain open.

    They pulled out more than a week to 10 days before the attack on our embassy.since our experts felt so secure, what were the contingency plans in case our embassy came under attack? Where were the Preesident and his defense task force when the Seals called? Did the Pres answer their phone calls? Where were the fighter planes, drones, missiles, waiting to bombard Libya if our embassy came under siege? Granted our defense people are experts, but where was our two minute combat readiness plan?

    I have never written even a miniature editorial since I won the writing award in college but I am the proud daughter an an African American World war I hero who was a private but was elevated to the top five star general because of the supernatural heroic efforts he made to win World War I.

    Look him up at the Pentagon. I’m going to write a book about his life and the way he took over from every officer /General in WWI and virtually guided America to victory–truly an unsung hero. However the top military status the top govt status was stolen from him and his family and used by the govt as theirs.

    So much for that ———— WE should stop saying that the Seals didn’t stand down and commend them for their beyond heroic efforts. I’d like to see a day when we clap for them for at least two to three minutes –real live heroes–no better people on earth than those that lay down their lives for their fellow man.
    Seems like the Obama administration got caught with their pants down. Certainly, our military should always be ready to come to the rescue of our Seals and Berets when the conditions are as perilous as even the British knew that they were.Mary Threadgill Bush , only daughter of unsung hero/ African American/supernaturally promoted to Five Star General by each General in World War I – Mr Lonnie H.

    The two Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty should be awarded the Medal of Honor. They were referred to as bumps in the road because of the election. Our government refused to help these Heroes. This is shameful. Why would anyone else ever want to serve this country in war zones knowing that they will be left to die?

    By moderation do you mean censorship?
