Deadly attack on U.S. Consulate directly tied to Al Qaeda, sources tell FOX News
Intelligence sources are telling FOX News they are convinced the deadly attack at the U.S. Consulate in Libya was directly tied to Al Qaeda, and they think a former Guantanamo detainee was involved.
FOX New sources say the attack involved and may have even been lead by a man who was released from Gitmo in 2007.
A former Navy SEAL from Winchester was killed in that attack. Wednesday, hundreds of family, friends and dignitaries packed a Winchester church for the funeral of Glen Doherty.
During the eulogy, Doherty's brother told mourners Glen died doing what he loved, protecting Americans. He says on the night of the attack, Glen was called in to help lead 30 Americans out of harm's way to a safe house. They all made it safely to the refuge, but then the Consulate itself was overrun. Those 30 people Glen led to the safe house all survived the attacks in Benghazi, Libya.
