Good News – The First “Honest” Reports Of Glen Doherty and Ty Woods Bravery Breaks Into The Media….

Thank you to all the bloggers who have linked to, and shared, the Heroic story of Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.  Early this morning Fran Townsend with CNN penned a more honest account of what happened in Benghazi.   It took over a week, but perhaps now the TRUTH will come out…..

Former Navy SEALs died after coming to the aid of others(CNN) — Two former Navy SEALs who were among four Americans killed last week in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, died after rushing to the aid of their colleagues, according to sources familiar with the incident.

Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were in Benghazi as part of a security contractor force.

On September 11, they were ensconced in the safety of an annex location in another part of the city when they got word that the main consulate building was under fire and the diplomats there — with an armed force of only nine people — were overwhelmed by the deteriorating situation.

Doherty and Woods, along with other security personnel, left the secure annex and made their way to the chaotic scene, rounding up the consulate staff who were under attack and guiding them back to the second safe building.

Their grim task also included recovering the body of computer expert Sean Smith, who had succumbed to smoke inhalation from a fire ignited by the attackers. The sources said diesel fuel was used to set the fire and the thick, black smoke created by the accelerant added to the confusion on the ground.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, who had gone missing during the attack, was not among those evacuated. He was later reported dead. The State Department has not released details about how Stevens died, though numerous media reports have said the ambassador was taken from the consulate to Benghazi Medical Center by locals.

After arriving back at the annex, the incident was far from over for the security team, which included Woods and Doherty. An attack was launched on the annex — this one more intense than the initial assault on the main building.

Military officials in Benghazi told CNN that rocket-propelled grenades were among the heavy firepower used by the attackers at the annex, with one official saying mortars were also fired.

“It was during that (second attack) that two additional U.S. personnel were killed and two others were wounded,” a senior administration official said last week in providing details of the attack. Those two victims were later confirmed to be Doherty and Woods.

The men were remembered last week during a transfer-of-remains ceremony attended by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama.

Doherty grew up in Massachusetts with a passion for the outdoors. He served two tours of duty in Iraq, starting with the U.S. invasion in 2003, before leaving the military in 2005. He then became a private security contractor, working in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. A diplomatic source told CNN that Doherty was in Libya to search for shoulder-fired anti-aircraft missiles — a mission given high priority after the fall of longtime Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi.

Woods, a registered nurse and certified paramedic, served multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. After retiring from the Navy, he worked in diplomatic security in posts from Central America to the Middle East. (more)

    How will the Obama media get Obama out of this one? There must be some way to blame Bush.

    They have already linked the attack to a terrorist released from Gitmo in 2007, thus implying that President Bush is responsible. I think however, that this tidbit is being “walked back”.

    “An al Qaeda terrorist freed from the Guantanamo Bay prison was identified yesterday as a key suspect — and perhaps the mastermind — of the horrific attack on the US Consulate in Libya, as the White House conceded that the bloody assault was an act of terror.

    Sufyan Ben Qumu — who was tied to the 9/11 financiers and once worked for Osama bin Laden — was likely involved in the attack and may have been its ringleader, intelligence sources told Fox News.”

    I would like to hear the story of the “two others” that were wounded, and the stories from the staff that made it to the safe house.
    Al Jazeera reported that “up to” 10 Libyan security guards were killed trying to battle the attackers, but I have not heard the death count of “attackers” that were killed. I know if these two ex-Seals got their hands on weapons, there were deaths on the other side…unless thier guns were also armed with blanks like the Marines at the embassy.
