The rest of the Benghazi story – Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty

Behngazi Heros - Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods

Posted by John Prather at the Tea Party

The stunning part of this story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that only two men had inflicted so much death and destruction on them.

The news has been full of the attacks on our Embassies, and Consulates throughout the Islamic world, and in particular, the deaths of Counselor Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi, Libya.

However, there’s a little known story of incredible bravery, heroics, and courage that should be the top story.

So what actually happened at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi Libya? We are learning more about this every day. Counselor Stevens and Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, along with administrative staff, were working out of temporary quarters because of the fact that in the spring of 2011 during the so-called Arab Spring, instigated by Mr. Obama, and his minions, the United States cut ties with then president Moammar Gaddafi. Our embassy in Tripoli, had been looted and ransacked, causing it to be unserviceable. It is still in a state of disrepair.

Security for Embassies, Consulates, and their personnel is to be provided by the host nation. Since Libya has gone through a civil war of sorts in the past 18 months, the current government is very unstable, and therefore, unreliable.

A well-organized attack by radical Jihadists was planned specifically targeting the temporary U.S. Consulate buildings in Benghazi. The Libyan security force that was in place to protect our people deserted their post, or joined the attacking force. Either way, our people were in a real fix.

A short distance from the American compound, two Americans were sleeping. They were in Libya as independent contractors working an assignment totally unrelated to our State Department. They also happened to be former Navy Seal’s.

When they heard the noise coming from the attack on our Benghazi Consulate, as you would expect from highly trained warriors, they ran to the fight. Apparently, they had no weapons, but seeing the Libyan guards dropping their guns in their haste from fleeing the scene, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty snatched up several of these discarded weapons and prepared to defend the American compound.

Not knowing exactly what was taking place, the two SEALs set up a defensive perimeter. Unfortunately Counselor Stevens was already gravely injured, and Foreign Service officer, Sean Smith, was dead. However, because of their quick action and suppressive fire, twenty administrative personnel in the Consulate were able to escape to safety. Eventually, these two courageous men were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers brought against them, an enemy force numbering between 100 to 200 attackers which came in two waves. But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.

As it became apparent to these selfless heroes, they were definitely going to lose their lives unless some reinforcements showed up in a hurry. As we know now, that was not to be. I’m fairly certain they knew they were going to die in this gun fight, but not before they took a whole lot of bad guys with them!

Consider these tenets of the Navy SEAL Code:

1) Loyalty to Country, Team and Teammate,
2) Serve with Honor and Integrity On and Off the Battlefield,
3) Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit,
4) Take responsibility for your actions and the actions of your teammates,
5) Excel as Warriors through Discipline and Innovation,
6) Train for War, Fight to Win, Defeat our Nation’s Enemies, and…
7) Earn your Trident every day


Thank you, Tyrone and Glen. To their very last breath, both lived up to the SEAL Code. You served all of us well. You were courageous in the face of certain death. And Tyrone, even though you never got to hold your newborn son, he will grow up knowing the character and quality of his father, a man among men who sacrificed himself defending others.

This should be passed on
and on and on.

These two men deserve the CMH. The fact that they were not “on duty” as Navy personnel, and that they disobeyed orders, is irrelevant. To me, the order to “Stand Down” was an unlawful order, and who ever issued it needs to be punished to the fullest extent of the law.

These two men displayed the honor that should be expected of every service member of the United States. They earned the highest award of this nation by their actions.

Death to Tyrants!!

    Dear friends, you can be brave, you may also be right, but, if your president serves the Saudis and not the U.S., everything will be lost.
    Look what's happening in your country, churches become mosques, universities are becoming bastions of terrorist groups and thoise who does not agree with this policy the government pursues him.

    the order to stand down as far as they where concerned was unlawful and being so they did not actually break any orders because you don't have to listen to any orders that are unlawful.

    The discomfort and pain of having these brave patriot lions led buy a shallow and trite fool is almost too much to bear. We must be able to talk to the men who were saved to preserve their story. Where are the real men in congress and the senate? They must act to impeach the traitors that enable our enemies and disable our friends. Congress also must investigate the murder of 20+ Seal Team 6 members from 2011- who were intentionally sent to their deaths Thank you Dr Michael Savage for keeping this most important story alive in our pained hearts.

    There are many 'facts' that are not entirely true in this article. For one, Ty did hold his son and spent much time with him before leaving on his mission. As for the details of what happens in benzagh, there are many things that are not correct and it would take far too long to go through them (without disclosing other details) all. But thank you for spreading the word of how great Ty and Glenn were/are. That part is beyond true!

    Glen and Ty were employed by the CIA handlers who set them up to be sacrificed as a false flag incident later at the "safe house" ambush when Ty didn't realize that the fix was in after the CIA earlier ordered his five man team to stand down so the attackers might prevail at the temporary mission in Benghazi. When Ty and his team could no longer tolerate such despicable treachery they used their hardened vehicles to charge to the rescue, because that is what SEALs with Boshido spirit do. The bad guys were shocked and surprised when Ty and his team dropped in over the wall as the militia members knew the Libyan security stooges were going to desert and they were assured that the set up would be a cake walk. Foxes watching the hen house. Incredibly stupid or deliberate?? Ty himself quickly eliminated 13 of the invaders and he and the others rescued 20 or so mission personnel who they evacuated to the airport before Ty's team returned to their post. Returning to the safe house it was noticed the cache of ammo for their M-240 was reduced and the hard drives were removed from the computers. Wonder what ghost did that, since no bad guys were inside?

    If these warriors earlier were allowed to intervene Smith and Stevens may have been saved but that was not the CIA intent. The sacrifice at the mission being unexpectedly minimized, the ambush at the safe house became the alternative means to the political end, creating an incident to induce (and excuse) the US backed provisional government in Tripoli for inviting American boots on the ground in Libya. Glen Doherty and his quick response team flew from Tripoli to bolster Ty and his smaller team, and when they were directed mid-flight to return (after some as yet unidentified slime balls decided the safe house was to be an alternative false flag) they declined as being past the point of return and needing refuel in Benghazi. Upon arrival they were stalled by Libyans at the airport. After they made it to the safe house most of Glen's team were ordered back to the airport to refuel and guard the aircraft.

  25. frank brussow

    Glen remained with his SEAL brother Ty and the militia siege was concentrated on the safe house, with only five operatives remaining to defend the post. The attacks spanned about seven hours. Long enough to stagger the scrambling of C-130 Spectres from Bagdad that could make passes over the skirmish and go on to Tripoli to refuel and return. Fast movers from Italy could have rotated overhead within an hour and a half of the mission attack. Even though requested aid was withheld still the drones overhead, that in real time videoed these extraordinary men still fighting to the death after realizing they were set up and sold out by the CIA, might have saved Glen and Ty at the machine gun on the roof that laid down suppressing that could not be silenced by the straight line of fire of the militia AKs and RPGs. Many of the attackers who were far superior in numbers were dispatched to the afterlife, much to the anger of their leaders. The men who summoned to operate the mortar to knock Glen and Ty from the superior position they chose were US trained and didn't know on whom they were be dropping the mortar rounds.They got paid. The implacement was painted by a laser siting device provided to the defenders, but support to knock out the mortar implacement still was withheld.

  26. frank brussow

    May 29, 2014 at 8:23 pm

    The CIA cut off radio communication and abandoned them. The drone overhead that was low on fuel could have been flown into the implacement to kill the operators. Afterward the other drone could have buzzed the other positions to intimidate the attackers from pressing the attack. Unlike the usual poorly trained militia these guys dropped the first round directly into the center of the roof. It did not explode. Then clicked it back to blow up Ty and Glen at the machine gun on the edge of the roof. Then the position was overrun. Two US operatives were captured and what happened to them and to a fifth operative is unreported.
    Our brave mostly anonymous SOG warriors don't opt to risk dying with their brothers for their country as a result of betrayal by another agency with a nefarious agenda (or upon an ill advised decision to dump them into 12 ft seas in the dark with little hope of locating their RIBs to reach the beach). Given the manner in which the Libyan militia slaughtered 66 captured men of Gaddafi's army while their hands were tied behind their backs, since that's justice in that part of the world, perhaps JSOC specialists can mete out Israeli Munich justice on the militia members that killed our people wherever they are found for after all it is a global war of terrorism where boundaries truly establish no barriers. Isn't that how we introduced OSB to justice in Pakistan. But wait weren't all but two of the SOG warriors, that actually knew whether OSB was taken alive and rung out by CIA interrogators as an unparalleled intelligence asset, eliminated and cremated in a relic cargo helicopter constructed during 'Nam. Hmmmm, SOG warriors beware of rationalized CIA sociopathology.

    Want to do something positive? All of us contact our elected senators and representatives and tell them to contact their compatriots on the new select inquiry committee regarding Benghazi. Influence them to compel any and all Federal agencies to confidentially provide the name and locations of all the operatives that were posted at the safe house, as well as all the operatives that flew with Glen Doherty from Tripoli to Benghazi, to ascertain the names of all those operatives that left Woods, Doherty and their small team at the safe house to return to the airport and to compel each one of them to be interrogated individually behind closed doors to ascertain the truth for confidential analysis by the members of the committee. All autopsy report's of each U.S. citizen killed two weeks before and within three months after the two weeks after the attack on the mission must be obtained and reviewed. Then committee members should demand to see all the relevant drone video, no BS excuses. When they view those videos and the collateral radio communication they will directly experience how horrific the circumstances were when these warriors were treacherously abandoned and deliberately sacrificed for perceived political advantage that presently "makes no difference" as Hifter has staged a coup that eliminated the provisional government that was trying to find its way. Wonder what the oil wealth barons will do now.

  28. frank brussow

    May 29, 2014 at 8:46 pm

    Less subtle than what happened in Libya, O's proposed to invade Syria,. When that was squelched it was worrisome for the wealthy oil barons as Russians still have their hands on the Syrian oil spigot. Maybe the 10 billion that O purportedly gave the Syrian refugees, some AQ sympathizers, will keep the fire fueled since it appears CIA Stevens was unsuccessful at persuading the Libyan militias to return the weapons that we gave them to kill Gaddafi so we can ship them to the Syrian revolutionaries via Turkey to oust Assad. Better O should return the 10 billion to the Social Security fund than foment further discord and death in Syria. Those that don't like Assad can stay in Jordan if he is re-elected in June. Will the US support terrorists training with our advisers in Jordan to spread terror in Syria to unseat Assad. And aren't Jordan and Syria persistent enemies of our ally, the Israelis? Aren't some of those Syrian "revolutionaries" affiliates of AQ that can't get along with the Christians and who would cut an American's head to spread the faith by the sword? Nonetheless, the Congresspersons should be urged to enter into a partisan bill to award Doherty and Woods the Congessional Medal of Honor both in their individual capacities for their uncommon valor but also as models of all other SOG warriors that gave up their mortal lives secretly in the service of our country whose names we will not know and of whose valorous deeds we will not hear. If Bob Hope was awarded the CMH, then these two heroes deserve it for courageously persisting despite officials of our government opting to abandon them for perceived political advantage.
    After the betrayal and sacrifice, the true Libyan citizens of Benghazi drove two of the despised militias out of town, although four of the demonstrators were killed, and the provisional government outlawed all militias except for those excepted by the provisional government for accepting a government appointees as their leaders. Also American troops were invited into Tripoli to protect the actual embassy that was to be re-established there. But now there's Hifter. America, Akbar!

    These are mistruths…. Doherty could not have "snatched up several of these discarded weapons and prepared to defend the American compound". He was in Tripoli at the time of the attack.
    Why do you have to spread such disinformation?

    Immediately upon hearing about this attack, I went through over ten thousand Google search results and could find no prior mention of any 'Ambassador Christopher Stevens" or of any U.S. diplomatic presence in Benghazi. Even the Libyan government had no knowledge of their existence. Everything that our government has released about this story is a damnable lie. Christopher Stevens was dealing weapons to our enemies and recruiting terrorists. He was not working to further our interests. FORMER navy seals in foreign countries are typically known as mercenaries. They perform very high risk jobs for which they are richly rewarded.

    Besides the more obvious functions of issuing visas and assisting American citizens abroad, Embassy and consulate staff interact with host governments, local business and nongovernmental organizations, the media and educational institutions, and private citizens to create positive responses to U.S. policy and the U.S. in general. Mission staff report on political and economic issues that affect bilateral relations and possibly impact the U.S. directly, help U.S. businesses to find partners and customers, and sponsor American scientists, scholars, and artists to promote professional, educational and cultural exchanges.

    I’m sorry everyone. I respect what these ex Navy seals were all about. But they are were civilian heroes that helped others in the time of need. Anyone would of done the same thing to survive. They were just better at killing and protecting. The story that Trump and media is telling is a bunch of lies and misleads the public. Before anyone starts to blame anybody, do your homework and research what really happened in Benghazi and why they were there in the first place. I just seen a commercial with Ty Woods wife and it seems she does not even know what she is talking about and understands what happened out there herself. I dont care for either presidential candidate. They are both liars. But if anyone is going to talk crap, they should tell the truth with no deceptions.
