I read in an email sent to me that the two SEAL's killed were private contractors involved in finding missing shoulder fired missiles not guarding the embassy. This makes what they did in saving some twenty staffers even more of an heroic sacrifice. They were about a half mile from the embassy and heard what was happening and came running. They held off 200 or so attackers for over two hours, saved a many as they could before being over-run and killed. These are REAL American heroes. God bless thier families for thier sacrifices.
