WASHINGTON - A former Navy SEAL was among the four American victims of the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday, according to information released by his family on Thursday.

Glen Doherty, 42, who worked as a private security contractor, is one of the two Americans killed in the attack who the State Department has not yet identified. It has only confirmed the deaths of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and Sean Smith, an information technology specialist.

Doherty's family, through a public relations firm, released information about him, including comments from friends.

"Don't feel sorry for him, he wouldn't have it," wrote Brandon Webb, who identified himself also as a former SEAL and friend of Doherty's.
