The problem is ...
It wasn't an embasy. The embasy is in Tripoli.
If the author of that article can't get that fact correct, I am suspect about the other details of the article.

2 people took out 60 "Terrorists"?
What cheat code did they use to get the god mode unlocked?
Seems too good to be true, like something out of a movie.
Unless these "Terrorists" were 10 yr old kids and women.
Originally, an embassy referred to an ambassador and his staff who were sent by their country to another country’s government to represent and advance the interests of their home country.
Today, an embassy is the nerve center for U.S. affairs inside another nation—the headquarters of the U.S. ambassador and his or her staff.
A permanent diplomatic mission is typically known as an embassy, and the person in charge of the mission is known as an ambassador. The term "embassy" is often used to refer to the building or compound housing an ambassador's offices and staff. Technically, however, "embassy" refers to the diplomatic delegation itself, while the office building in which they work is known as a chancery.
A consulate is similar to (but not the same as) a diplomatic office, but with focus on dealing with individual persons and businesses, as defined by the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations. A consulate or consulate general is generally a representative of the embassy in locales outside of the capital city.

Two Navy SEALs!...NOT "two people"!
“My biggest priority right now is bringing those folks to justice. And I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I always keep,” the president said, an apparent reference to the bin Laden raid.
Were these men part of SEAL team 6?

There is nothing really unbelievable about this overall..not sure what the whole propaganda thing is, a trained elite killer..killed a bunch of people before going down.
Ya, thats sort of what they do. Its why they aren't called just servicemen or soldiers but have a distinction of specops (in this case, seals). 60 between 2..60 unregulated milita.dudes with guns and some extras in essence, ya. well trained seals could easily do that overall.
There is also the reckless in numbers issue...if you join a group of 200 people outside a building, your not on guard. zombies outside make for easy targets just milling around, target rich environment.
I simply want confirmation of numbers overall. Want to know how 60 suddenly came up when pretty much everyone that would talk about is dead.
Here is why I find it a bit of a stretch. If I am in a group of a couple hundred, and seen almost half our numbers go down before we killed even a single person, I would go home...as would most. Hell, after a dozen, people would start questioning the wisdom of these actions.
