Via Mediaite. Is Boston the new Benghazi? That was message put forward Friday afternoon on Fox News’ The Five, less than two weeks after the devastating bombing at the Boston Marathon. During a discussion about the latest intelligence on the bombers’ motivation, co-host Andrea Tantarossaid the “parallels between Benghazi and Boston are pretty unbelievable.”The segment opened with Greg Gutfeld railing against the U.S. government for providing the Boston bombers “terror visas” because they are “fearful of accusations of profiling.” Gutfeld and his co-hosts went on to trash the Department of Justice for allowing the suspect in custody to be read his Miranda rights while the FBI was apparently still trying to question him under the public safety exception.
But the real bombshell came when Tantaros summed up what she felt is really going on with the Obama administration’s handling of the Boston case. Bringing up the “parallels between Benghazi and Boston,” she said “they bungled it leading up to both of these.” Extrapolating out her analogy, she added, “They blamed Benghazi on a video. This time they blamed it on misguided youth instead of saying radical Islam. Both are under ‘investigation’ so you can’t ask questions.” Finally, she said, with Benghazi, the Obama administration “blamed Romney.” Now, “they’re blaming the American people.”
