    Glen Doherty, a former Navy SEAL from Massachusetts, was one of the victims of the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, a family friend confirmed to Fox News.

    Doherty is the latest victim to be identified. The U.S. government earlier confirmed that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, a foreign service information management officer, died in the attack.

    The name of the fourth American who died in the attack has not been disclosed

    thney probably gave him (Stevens) a few spec ops guys under the state dept security detail umbrella to protect him.


    As to why, in a place like Bengahzi in a interim consulate that has been attacked before, that has with minimal structural enhancements that are built into a consulate, and- on 911, there was no Marine detail, is a question that may have to be asked and answered.

    Agreed. The Obama Administration was warned in both 2009 and 2010 about Embassy security risks .. The slashed funding.


    :

    The congressionally chartered Commission on Wartime Contracting issued a strong warning in 2009, saying the State Department’s reliance on lowest-priced contractors was jeopardizing security.

    “Lowest-priced security not good enough for war-zone embassies,” the commission wrote in a stinging report that urged other factors such as capability be considered in awarding security contracts.

    The State Department inspector general highlighted the gaps in some private security firms’ capabilities with investigations of the war-time security postures in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    A March 2010 report by the IG cited several potential weaknesses with the private firm guarding the Baghdad embassy, while acknowledging the firm had thus far protected the facility from any major attacks


    that selection quickly created new controversy when the Senate Armed Services Committee issued a report finding that the contractor had relied on warlords with possible ties to the Taliban to staff its security forces.

    The inspector general recently concluded that the State Department’s vetting of the contractor met federal regulations but somehow failed to uncovered the information found by Senate investigators

    Very very concerning information.. the full article gives more details.
