There is confusion today regarding not only the previous two unidentified Americans who died alongside Ambassador Stevens and information officer Sean Smith., but that two additional troops died in the rescue attempt in a highly coordinated attack on a US force responding to evacuate othe Embassy personnel.
There was never any doubt in my mind that the two unidentified who died alongside of Ambassador Stevens were either members of the Ambassador’s security detail or Marines who are the first line of defense for all embassies worldwide.
This morning we learn that one of the original four killed was a former Navy Seal, a member of the Ambassador’s security detail, who had served with distinction in Iraq, Afghanistan and other trouble spots around the globe. Fox News offered his name as Glen Doherty, 42 of Winchester, MA.
The name of the fourth member of the Ambassador’s staff is forthcoming.
TWO MORE TROOPS KILLED?
Now from the Chicago Tribune we learn two other troops were killed when they came to the rescue of Embassy personnel. From the Chicago Tribune:

BENGHAZI, Libya (Reuters) – A squad of U.S. troops dispatched by helicopter across the Libyan desert to rescue besieged diplomats from Benghazi on Wednesday ran into a fierce overnight ambush that left a further two Americans dead, Libyan officials told Reuters.
Accounts of the mayhem at the U.S. consulate, where the ambassador and a fourth American died after a chaotic protest over a film insulting to Islam, remain patchy. But two Libyan officials, including the commander of a security force which escorted the U.S. rescuers, said a later assault on a supposedly safe refuge for the diplomats appeared professionally executed.

WHAT’S COMING: Expect more attacks, more coordination in an early “October Surprise” throughout the Middle East and perhaps even Europe and Latin America as Islamic estremists backed by Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood test the will and power of the current American Administration.

I am not surprised at all that these vermin committed these vile and disgusting acts before they murdered the ambassador; all the muSlimes know is Abuse, Hatred and Murder. You can't use diplomacy with murderers, you can't reason with fanatical muslims who are born and bred to hate and kill non-muslims. There can be no peace with them, they reject co-existence with others; they have given us two choices kill or be killed.
Gag..............and the commander in chief raises campaign funds and makes reelection speeches..................God rest the souls of all killed and comfort the families........
I saw that so called sec state clinton this morning and she seems to be kissing muslim but still.Un freaking reel
This is more than a terrible incident. Yes, I do believe that the USA will be attack by these uncultered, 7th century animals.
BRING THEM HOME NOW, AMERICA NEEDS THEM HOME TO PROTECT THE CITIZENS IN AMERICA.. WHY DOES OBAMA LET OUR MAN & WOMEN BE KILLED, CAUSE THATS WHAT HE NEEDS TO TAKE OVER 'AMERICA''
In WWII We round up all Japaness and put them in camps. Now we need put all muslims in camps and deport every damn one of them NOW. Now I guess I will get a nasty email one more time, just remember these are my BROTHERS and SISTER these scum are killing!
I totally agree Ken and not only Muslims anybody that doesn't belong in America. Cancel All Visas for any foreigner working in America. Time has come to clean up those that want to destroy us or want to kill us. Most of the blame is sitting on their duffs in Washington as they need to be arrested , prosecuted and executed or thrown in the deepest darkest jail cell's in America for Treason.
The Marines know how to do their job. Ambassador Patterson is pathetic! America is being reduced to a paper tiger by the paper shufflers. Any Marine knows you can't defend against terrorism with inept political hacks calling the shots, yet that is what they are required to do in cases such as this. If we are going to place our Marines in harms way then we should damned well give them the tools to do the job, not as is traditionally the case, cause them to be subservient to the ignorance of a pandering government lackey, ambassador or not! We see how effective Patterson's tactics are. Are American Citizens ever going to wake up and take control of their Country again, or are we destined to go down as a result of acquiescing to a herd of inept, pandering, second guessing politicians?
What i want to know is this. Did she get killed too? I hpoe she did.
I would like to say that the rape surprises me, but it doesn't. The people whom we continue to support with US funds are lower than the lowest animal and unworthy of the support of civilized people. I remain stunned that our administration cannot and will not see how utterly evil the muslims are..............
This is simply a repeat of Teheran in 1979. The Marines were forbidden to fire on the Iranians.The left never learns.
With these attacks, that are acts of war, we are within our rights to turn Libya,Egypt and Yemen into parking lots. God how I wish we had a real President,and a Congress with some balls.
A sad day for America. I read that the Marines didn't have ammo in their guns. If this is true I would suggest that the Secret Service that protects Obama's sorry rear end also do not have ammunition, the same for Hillary and the rest of this insane bunch. Now I see the jackals are having another stimulus.
