Mother of Navy Seal killed in Libya speaks out about Mitt Romney

WHDH-TV - BOSTON (WHDH) -- The attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya became a major issue on the campaign trail and the mother of a Navy Seal killed in the violence is voicing her anger that Mitt Romney is speaking about her son on the campaign trail.
“I met some remarkable people, one of whom was a former navy seal. I just learned a few days ago that he was one of the two former navy seals killed in Benghazi. It broke my heart,” Romney said to a crowd on the campaign trail.
Glen Doherty was one of four Americans killed in the September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate.
Romney met Doherty at a Christmas party.
7News spoke with Doherty’s mother.
"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,” said Barbara Doherty, Glen’s mother.
There was no response from the Romney camp.
