Benghazi Victim's Mom Sues CIA Over Insurance Policy

By    |   Wednesday, 08 Oct 2014 09:24 PM

More than two years after former Navy SEAL Glen Doherty was killed in the attack on the U.S. diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, his mother is still seeking money from a life insurance policy she says the CIA forced him to buy.

Doherty was working as a security contractor when he was killed in the attack with three other Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, on Sept. 11, 2012.

Appearing Wednesday on Fox News Channel's "On the Record with Greta Van Susteren," Barbara Doherty said the CIA required her son to purchase a life insurance policy before he could work as a contractor. He was required to buy the policy from a specific company, Rutherford Financial & Insurance Services, she said.

What Glen Doherty didn't know was that his policy paid only $3,000 in funeral expenses since he didn't have a wife or child. Amy Carnevale, the family's legal adviser, told Van Susteren that the benefit paid out was less than Doherty had paid in premiums.

Barbara Doherty said she is upset because her son's wishes aren't being honored, and said the "disrespectful" treatment she has been given has brought the pain of her son's death flooding back.

According to UTSanDiego.com, Rutherford Financial & Insurance Services is the exclusive insurance provider for the CIA, State Department and other government agencies.

Barbara Doherty is seeking $1 million for wrongful death. Sean Lake, who is the executor and beneficiary of his estate, has filed a separate claim seeking $1 million, UTSanDiego.com reported.
