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.

Now I ask My Brothers and Sister are being Murder by this goverment and nobody has the balls to do anything about it just maybe when they are kicking down American doors somebody will do something about it.
What I do not understand is why the US does not declare war? The wars were started for much less than this atrocities. Does not have Obama something to do with it? Was not all that Muslim Spring purposely orchestrated by him? Remember and believe the Quran. Muslim can not become Christian. That is punishable by death. Muslim is allowed to lie to non Muslims. And he has the obligation to spread Islam. Second WW was nothing like the first one. Third WW will not be like the second one. And those stupid appeasement people in the government never realized, that the 3rd WW already started. It will be nuclear at the end. Obama's policy secured the manufacture of nuclear weapons to Iran. So unless civilized western word proclaim Islam as cult and start to fight the war as the war suppose to be carried, the western world is doom. It will sees to exist.
