The dust is beginning to settle from Wednesday’s heated confrontation between Congressional Republicans and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at hearings on the September 11, 2012, deadly attacks on Americans in Benghazi, Libya. While voices were raised, scowls exchanged and teeth mashed, we still have few answers to questions on why the State Department did not take threats to the U.S. consulate in Benghazi more seriously, why the administration for weeks described terrorist-linked attacks as protests to an American YouTube film, and what is being done to make sure an event like this doesn’t happen again.

Former New York State Senator and Head of the NY State Office Public Safety Michael Balboni joined ‘Wilkow!‘ Thursday to discuss takeaways from the Benghazi hearings Wednesday with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and the confirmation hearing today with her sucessor Sen. John Kerry.

During the interview the former state senator said “any time you have an Ambassador of the United States be assassinated, it’s really an act of war.” Balboni also discussed the recent terrorist attack in Algeria, as well as the ongoing conflict in Syria. Watch a clip from Thursday’s show below:
