Ten years ago, on September 12th, 2012, SOFREP shared its initial reports on the attack on 9/11 on the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. It hit very close to home here at SOFREP as one of the casualties was former navy SEAL and CIA contractor Glen Doherty who was the best friend of SOFREP publisher Brandon Webb. Just a few months before Glen had contributed two articles for the site, one about Special Warfare Combatant Crewmen and another about SOF medics using live goats to train on in order to save human lives.

In the aftermath of the attack that killed Glen, US Ambassador Chris Stevens, State Department employee Sean Smith and, former navy SEAL and CIA contractor Ty Woods, SOFREP reported extensively on the government foul-ups that led to the attack wrote the “Benghazi; The Definitive Report,” which became a New York Times Best Seller.
