On Friday, TheBlazeTV’s Andrew Wilkow hosted former Secret Service agent and GOP Senate candidate Dan Bongino to discuss the facts surrounding the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya earlier this week. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three of his staff were killed when an angry mob of Islamists stormed the compound.
Bongino said there are only two possible reasons the U.S. was as unprepared for the fiery assault as it was.
“Either this was the worst threat assessment done by completely incompetent people or the threat assessment was accurate and was ignored,” he said. “And a valid question is, was it ignored for political reasons? I’m not making accusations, I don’t have the data. No one at the State Department is talking.”
The former Secret Service agent went on say the State Department has shown “sheer incompetence” in handling the situation and accused the Obama administration of having a “history of secrecy” in similar situations.
“We’ve seen this before with this administration, politics before security,” Bongino added.
Agreeing, Wilkow readily admitted that he is no security expert, but said with an anti-Muslim video running on state-run TV, “you might say to the embassy, you know what, just keep an eye out.”
