Fox News' Andrea Tantaros Compares Boston Investigation To Benghazi: 'There Have Been Balls Dropped' (VIDEO)

The hosts of "The Five" were outraged on Wednesday over the way the three new suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings have been treated, arguing that that they should be punished much more harshly.

Three more men were arrested on Wednesday in connection to the bombings. Dias Kadyrbayev and Azamat Tazhayakov, two of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's college friends, have been charged with helping him dispose of a laptop and fireworks, and Robel Phillipos is accused of lying to law enforcement officials.

"You're either with us or against us," co-host Dana Perino said on Wednesday's "The Five." "And if you are involved in terrorism, you too are a terrorist." She alleged that authorities have treated the arrest of the three new suspects like "criminal situation when it is actually a war... we have a war going on, and it's happening right here on our soil."

Later, Bolling claimed that the FBI could have started interrogating the new suspects two weeks ago, and asked whether the authorities "were at fault" here.

"The parallels that this incident is taking on to Benghazi are getting more and more similar by the day," Andrea Tantaros responded. "A failure leading up to it — I think they did a good job the day of... but now we see following this incident, there have been balls dropped in hindsight."
