On Tuesday, the State Department confirmed that there was a weekend siege at an Intercontinental Hotel in the Afghan capital. They also revealed that, as a result of the terror attack, “multiple” American citizens were killed.
The identity of one of those Americans has been revealed. Glenn Selig, a high profile crisis manager and former investigative reporter for Tampa’s FOX 13 News, was among the 22 people killed during the 14-hour siege at Afghanistan hotel, confirmed a local Fox affiliate WFLA.
“Unfortunately, we have received confirmation Glenn Selig was killed during the attack on the Intercontinental Hotel. Glenn was a tireless professional, loyal friend and pillar of the community, but most importantly he was a loving husband and wonderful father. The loss for his family and friends cannot be measured nor conveyed strongly enough, but we thank everyone for the outpouring of support we have received,” Selig Multimedia said in a statement regarding his passing.
Selig, an award-winning investigative reporter, worked FOX 13 News in Tampa before starting The Agency, a crisis management company in 2007. He later established The Agency’s parent company, Selig Multimedia, Inc.
In October, Selig was hired by Richard Gates. Gates is a former deputy chair of the Trump campaign. He hired Selig after he was charged with operating as an agent of Ukraine and laundering “tens of millions of dollars in income” during that time.
Selig was one of multiple American killed and injured in the Taliban’s attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul. The Taliban has since claimed responsibility for the attack.
