“There are three scandals here – before, during and after,” Thompson told about 40 people gathered for the AFP event at the Mariner's Inn in the Cincinnati suburb of West Chester. Citing the numerous incidents and warnings leading up to the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the 11th anniversary of the 2001 terrorist attacks, Thompson mockingly asked, “What was your first hint that there might be trouble in Libya?”

Thompson commented on reports that administration officials refused to approve U.S. air strikes to defend the embattled Benghazi compound because of concerns about civilian casualties.

“You’re outside our embassy while it’s being attacked? Fair game, buddy,” said Thompson, who unsuccessfully sought the GOP presidential nomination in 2008. With the latest news from CBS that the administration did not convene its Counterterrorism Security Group during the Libyan crisis, he said the scandal was “playing out as we speak.”

BTW, I supported Thompson for the Republican nominee in 2008.

Sadly Fred is very busy now selling that reverse mortgage insurance on TV to seniors. He should be ashamed. What a disappointment. He could have been a contender.

Former US Senator for 9 yrs. chairman of the International Security Advisory Board at the United States Department of State, was a member of the U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, and is a Visiting Fellow with the American Enterprise Institute, specializing in national security and intelligence.

I wouldn't classify Thompson as a non mainstream politician. Perhaps one of the good good 'ol Boys.

I was a Thompson supporter for the 2008 nomination myself but as others already pointed out I don't think Fred had his heart in the game. Was disappointed.
