Slain SEAL's mother critical of Romney
By Steve Benen -  Wed Oct 10, 2012

This week, Mitt Romney added a new anecdote to his stump speech. It's proving to be a controversial decision.

Just yesterday, at events in Ohio and Iowa, the Republican said he remembered meeting a former Navy SEAL a while back, whom he recently learned was one of the four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya.

The slain American's mother does not seem pleased.
Barbara Doherty, whose son Glen was killed in last month's attack, told the NBC affiliate in Boston:

"I don't trust Romney. He shouldn't make my son's death part of his political agenda. It's wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama."

The station sought a response from the Romney campaign, but did not receive one.

Romney has already faced criticism for exploiting the deaths in Benghazi for partisan gain last month, and Doherty's criticism certainly won't help the larger political dynamic.

Update: Producers for MSNBC's Martin Bashir spoke with Glen Doherty's sister, who confirmed that Romney and Doherty had met at a party "two or three years ago" and that the campaign had reached out to his family through an intermediary. The family also knew there was a possibility Romney would be telling the story on the campaign trail.

Second Update: As of this afternoon, the Romney campaign has said the candidate will stop repeating the anecdote, respecting the mother's wishes.

Hey Benny, how does it feel knowing (and you're in denial if you don't) that Obama's new hate, lie and discredit Romney platform is blowing up in the lefts face and because of it his numbers are turning around and dropping like a rock?

So it's bad when Romney does it, but it's cool when Obama exploits the SEALs of DEVGRU for his political gain?

For months in advance they have been begging for more selocurity due to threats. Even though intelligence exposed more and more threats, Obama refused the requests by the ambassador himself. Did he actually pull the trigger, no, but he might as well have. Personally, when Obama is out of office he should become the new American (even though he's not American) ambassador to Libya.

All of that being said. He killed them.

It is my understanding that the SEALS were not even part of the Embassy security force, but went out of their own accord to help the Ambassador. The whole situation is fucked up, and never should have went down like it did.

Were talking about different SEALs dude. I was talking about DEVGRU, or "Team 6", and Obama exploiting them for his campaign after the OBL raid.
