…And 3 Others

Okay enough already. It has been over a month since Ambassador Stevens “and 3 others” were murdered in a terrorist attack against our United States Embassy in Libya. A month and still the headlines are the same – “and 3 others”. Those brave former Navy Seals were Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods. Sean Smith was a Foreign Service Information Officer.


Got it Mr. President and all you “hip” media types. Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods, and Sean Smith were murdered in Libya.  They are not “and 3 others”, they were men working in a volatile area of the world on behalf of the United States. Us.


You have to search quite a while on the Internet to find out the names of these gentlemen and that is disgusting and shows just how lazy media has become. Article after article about Ambassador Stevens “and 3 others”. Over a month and still press releases about this horrible terrorist attack are still sketchy and still use that “and 3 others” in their titles.


Is the Obama administration really thinking the American public is so dumb that we are just going to sit back, re-elect him and trust some “independent” report being done internally by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton perhaps reporting in November. (after the election) It is not acceptable that even political figures high up in the administration do not name the Doherty, Woods and Smith along with Stevens. It is a continuous slap in the face for their families and the rest of us who mourn the loss of American citizens abroad.


Amb. Stevens, Glenn Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith died on September 11, 2012. All of their families are still waiting to hear, why? This lack of good, solid journalism has to stop. I wonder if Obama can name all 4 gentlemen or if he also is stuck in the “and 3 others” loop?
