The sister of Navy SEAL Glenn Doherty, who was killed at the CIA Annex in Benghazi, is pushing for passage of a bill:
Those killed included Doherty, 42; Tyrone Woods, a fellow former Navy SEAL; Sean Smith, an information management officer; and J. Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya.
The Doherty family wants Congress to act before it adjourns next month.
“There’s been so much politics around Benghazi, and we don’t want that to be his legacy,” Kate Doherty Quigley, Glen’s sister, said yesterday. “This is really about trying to honor the hard work that they did and honor people who died for their country, doing what they loved.”
