Benghazi Hero Glenn Doherty’s Family Hasn’t Received His Death Benefit Or Insurance Payment
This is incredibly shameful. According to a Facebook post from Brandon Webb, a friend of Benghazi victim Glen Doherty, his family still hasn’t received any payments from the government that abandoned him.
Webb doesn’t hesitate to name names in his post.
If politicians wanted to truly get to the bottom of Benghazi they would stop political grandstanding on both sides of the party lines and they’d do two things straight away.
1. Take care of the families involved. I can’t speak for the other three Americans but my friend Glen Doherty’s family/estate hasn’t received a death benefit or an insurance payment through his DBA policy with the CIA. His friends and I paid to put him in the ground out of our own pockets.
2. They would start to demand that Patrick Kennedy (yes he’s a “Kennedy”), the DOS Undersecretary of management, be held accountable at State. His leadership resulted in denied security requests, and he purposely slowed down the follow on investigation at State. He left his people and Stevens in perilous danger, and his neglect, and lack of leadership (Lions led by Lambs at DOS) contributed to four dead Americans.
His post is worth reading in its entirety. He concludes with, “And I don’t care about some goddamn sound byte on Fox news by some American Congressman that’s never held a real job, and isn’t affected by the same rules as the rest of us but figured out how to use Benghazi for his own political benefit.” Well said.
