Former Secret Service Agent Tells Wilkow Obama Administration Has Shown ‘Sheer Incompetence’ in Handling Libya Attack

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.”

    Either Obama is incompetent, naive or establishment of a Caliphate is exactly what he wants.

      Not fair! Obama is busy campaigning. American deaths, intrusion on our soil, desecration of our flag, and intelligence meetings make him very sleepy. He cares a lot, about “free” birth control pills for women provided by religious institutions that don’t believe in contraception and abortion.

      He is also against “irresponsible” and “unpatriotic” spending policies.

      That is his goal and the fence sitters are allowing it. They will not enforce the law for ignorance is not excuse for Obama to plead. There are too many “coincidences” for them to be conincidental. One is a mistake, it is said, and twice is stupidity, and the third time is a conspiracy. There have been way more than three.

"I’m not making accusations, I don’t have the data."

I don't see it as an accusation. I see it as him stating his opinion. Depending on what his job with the SS was, he could have some inside knowledge as to how other presidents handled things.

And of course we all know that dems/libs have never made accusations without facts. Not saying reps/conserves don't, but neither side is blameless.
