“Who was Glen Doherty? Details emerge on former SEAL’s final actions in Benghazi”
“”Greg, Greg, we are under attack,” were the last words from Ambassador Chris Stevens to his deputy Greg Hicks over the phone from Benghazi shortly after the attack began around 9:30 p.m.
“If you don’t get here we are going to die,” the radio operator at the tactical operations center in Benghazi pronounced on the radio from the consulate.
Doherty left Tripoli at about midnight…after chartering a local plane… There were no U.S. air assets in Tripoli. He…arrived at the CIA annex at 5:15 a.m. after being delayed for several hours…by…Libyans. The CIA annex…is where the Americans…had retreated and the body of State Department official Sean Smith had been brought…Ambassador Stevens was still missing.
Doherty joined Tyrone Woods, another highly trained former SEAL, on the roof of one of the building….mortars were fired. Doherty and Woods were both killed.
Doherty’s Libya assignment was…his last for the CIA. He had been offered a…job in the private sector that would have allowed him to get out of the line of fire. He told his future employer that he had one last job to do… in Benghazi.”
