With no further explanation, NBC is saying that “multiple US officials and other sources” say former SEALS, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were not at the Consulate to provide security for Ambassador Christopher Stevens or Consulate personnel. In the video you will hear that security was “woefully low – no security whatsoever,” and that it’s not much better at the Tripoli Embassy – “shocking and irresponsible.” The narrator says the security was provided by a “US Regional Security Officer” and the Libyan February 17 Brigades. What the heck is a “US Regional Security Officer?” Is he among the dead or wounded? See the ABC report below with more detail, including that Woods and Doherty died in a firefight a couple of hours after the Consulate attack, which I presume means defending the safe house.
ABC is reporting that both Doherty and Woods lived in San Diego. Doherty was a Security and Intelligence Specialist. In this video, ABC says Doherty told them “last month,” he was in the area to hunt down and destroy “dangerous weapons” in the area.
