Mother of Navy Seal killed in Libya speaks out

Source: WHDH News

BOSTON (WHDH) -- The attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya became a major issue on the campaign trail and the mother of a Navy Seal killed in the violence is voicing her anger that Mitt Romney is speaking about her son on the campaign trail.“I met some remarkable people, one of whom was a former navy seal. I just learned a few days ago that he was one of the two former navy seals killed in Benghazi. It broke my heart,” Romney said to a crowd on the campaign trail.

Glen Doherty was one of four Americans killed in the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate.Romney met Doherty at a Christmas party.

7News spoke with Doherty’s mother.

"I don't trust Romney. He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama,” said Barbara Doherty, Glen’s mother.

Will he make it a third and give this embarrassing turn of events even more exposure?

3. See here: "Romney's emotional story remembered very differently by friend of fallen SEAL"

Ellefsen said Doherty recalled meeting Mitt Romney years ago, but the account was much different from what the Presidential candidate retold in Iowa.

According to Ellefsen, Romney introduced himself to Doherty four separate times during the gathering.

"He said it was very comical," Ellefsen said, "Mitt Romney approached him ultimately four times, using this private gathering as a political venture to further his image. He kept introducing himself as Mitt Romney, a political figure. The same introduction, the same opening line. Glen believed it to be very insincere and stale."

"He said it was pathetic and comical to have the same person come up to you within only a half hour, have this person reintroduce himself to you, having absolutely no idea whatsoever that he just did this 20 minutes ago, and did not even recognize Glen's face."

5. Wife of US Marine Killed for Refusing Rough Sex

 

Wife of a US marine stationed in Afghanistan was killed recently for refusing rough sex.

How safe are family members of armed forces personnels when porn and illegal sex is rampant worldwide?

7. What?

 

Porn is legal in all civilized countries.

And I'm not even sure where you're going with the "illegal sex" bit.

That sounds like domestic violence. Something that occurs among civilians as well.

6. Transparently feckless and craven

draft-dodging chicken-hawk hypocrite Romney. 'Vote for me, I met a guy who was actually in the military once, at a party.'

You're onto something Dan, or that asshole wouldn't have felt compelled to post the non-sequitor in post # 5.
