The mother of a Navy SEAL killed in the attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya criticized Mitt Romney for mentioning her son on the campaign trail, Boston’s WHDH-7 reports.

“I don’t trust Romney,” said Barbara Doherty, mother of slain SEAL Glen Doherty. “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 [President] Obama.”

Romney, who reportedly met Glen Doherty at a Christmas party, spoke at a campaign event about his sadness upon learning of Doherty’s death. The Romney campaign said Thursday he would stop mentioning Doherty publicly.

 

Romney has criticized the Obama administration’s handling of security at the consulate before the attack, as well as the administration’s response to to the attack, making it a major campaign issue.
