Explanation

The first blank hinges on the meaning of the word purport, which means to “pretend to be,” or to “masquerade as.” The sentence implies that the bureau is pretending to be harmless, or benign.

For the second blank, you are looking for a word that means to “leave hurriedly”; absconded fits. Notice that immigrated, though close in meaning, isn’t quite right because it means to “arrive at” a country or region rather than to “leave from” it.

Pandered, which means “indulged another’s desire,” is not appropriate in this sentence.

Benign, absconded.
