GOP Congressman Says John McCain Was Responsible For The Benghazi Terror Attacks

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) accused Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday of  complicity in the attacks in Benghazi, Libya last year which resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the late Ambassador Chris Stevens, while on right wing radio host Frank Gaffney’s show.

Gaffney described the Senator’s trip as  “hobnobbing with Jihadists.” He then pondered whether “we’re going to get a proper investigation of the Benghazi-Gate scandal,” a “scandal” Gaffney said he believes “Sen. McCain’s bad advice got us into.”

Gohmert promptly agreed that McCain is to blame for Benghazi because McCain supported and advocated for the U.S. led war in Libya that ultimately helped Libyan rebels oust Muammar Qaddafi”, Think Progress reports.

 

Gohmert said, “Yeah and then we know if it had not been for Sen. McCain and President Obama being for what we knew at the time included al-Qaeda in the rebel forces then we would still have a U.S. ambassador and three others alive today because Benghazi would not have happened. But by giving power to the rebel forces that included al Qaeda that brought that whole mess about and helped create problems in Tunisia and Algeria. So I’m not sure what to think about his going to Syria. If history is any lesson the people he met with he wants us to help should be very careful about what Sen. McCain’s support could mean for them.”

Aside from Gohmert’s asparagus issues, is he for realsies?

    McInsane, needs to be arrested and jailed in Syria. I doubt if very many US citizens will fight to get him out. That includes, his wife. For some reason, he still think that he is playing with his G. I. Joe toys.
