Fox News Interview With Fake Expert on Sweden Further Baffles Swedes
The segment was the second time in under a week that a odd political happenstance in the United States left many Swedish officials scratching their heads.
The Fox News broadcast containing Bildt's interview describes Sweden as a country plagued by crime problems related to immigration.
Rasmus Eljanskog, a spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said nobody by this name worked at the ministry. According to Dagens Nyheter, Sweden's Defense Ministry and its Foreign Office both denied employing anyone under that name ("We do not know who he is", the Foreign Office said), while a member of Sweden's Military Intelligence and Security Service told the paper that Bildt is "unknown in Sweden as an expert on national security".
"He is. not in any way a known quantity in Sweden and has never been part of the Swedish debate", Swedish Defense University professor Robert Egnell said in an email to The Associated Press on Saturday.
So who is Nils Bildt? Johan Wiktorin, a fellow at the Royal Swedish Academy of War Sciences, took to Twitter to suggest he had not heard of Bildt either. In an email to "Dagens Nyheter", he said he was "unaware of the allegations" and therefore could not comment.
Bildt founded a security consulting business with offices in New York, Brussels and Tokyo - but not in Sweden.

"Had I spent a year in prison, I would think I would remember it", he said.
Mr. Bildt argued that immigration had led to considerable social problems in Sweden, and said that the country's liberal leanings meant that people who shared his opinion on the subject were being "viewed as outsiders".
As the Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter reported on Friday, Nils Bildt, who echoed President Donald Trump's debunked claim that immigrants from Muslim majority nations had driven a rise in violent crime in Sweden, has no known expertise in national security, and has not lived in his homeland since 1994.
In what will now be must-see TV, Fox News said O'Reilly would address the matter on his Monday show - which you can be sure will receive far less attention than initial reports that Bildt is an impostor. The question: Has Sweden's lenient immigration policies, especially with regard to refugees, resulted in an uptick in crime?
"The narrative in Sweden, the political debate is completely false", Bildt told O'Reilly.
But Sweden's Justice and Migration Minister Morgan Johansson again countered that the president should be "better informed about what the conditions really are here" before he speaks, Reuters reported.
