Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) gave yet another no-nonsense interview Sunday, where the retired Lieutenant Colonel ripped the administration’s handling of the current crisis in the Middle East.
When asked by the Fox News host what he thought of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s “spin” that the deadly protests are a “spontaneous” reaction to a “hateful” YouTube video, West responded:
“It’s very simple. When I listened to the U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice today, several words came to mind: asinine, naive, inept, incompetent, and borderline ignorant. Because when you understand that the Egyptian government…put out a letter talking about a potential threat of attacks and uprisings about a week before this– it was even printed in the Jerusalem Post on 9/11.
