Description

Mitt Romney will no longer reference having met one of the former Navy SEALs who died in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi after a complaint from the slain soldier's mother, the campaign confirmed Wednesday. On Tuesday, Romney began telling the story of a chance meeting with Glenn Doherty, the former SEAL, at a Christmas party in San Diego. Romney told the story again Wednesday during a town hall meeting in Mt. Vernon, Ohio. "We had a nice chat together, he served as a Navy SEAL and after his service as a SEAL, after a number of years, he had stayed involved in the Middle East," Romney said, adding that he was later "shocked" to learn Doherty was one of the foreign service officers killed in the terrorist attack on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this year.
