Obama administration makes it appear as if former SEALs were part of Ambassador Chris Stevens security team

Presumably the Obama administration misled everyone about the former SEALs role so that it looked as if the Obama administration wasn't irresponsible in letting the Ambassador not be properly protected.  From the Washington Guardian:
The two former Navy SEALs killed in last week's attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were not part of Ambassador Chris Stevens' official security detail but took up arms in an effort to protect the facility when it was overrun by insurgents, U.S. officials tell the Washington Guardian. . . . 
“Woods and Doherty weren’t part of the detail, nor were they personally responsible for the ambassador’s security, but they stepped into the breach when the attacks occurred and their actions saved others lives -- and they shouldn’t be lumped in with the security detail,” one senior official said, speaking only on condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak publicly about the State Department. . . .
