Louis Gohmert critical of John McCain on Benghazi and now his visit to Syria

Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert pointing to a Republican in the Benghazi scandal, targeting John McCain and his desire to change regimes in Libya.

Mediaite details how conservative radio host Frank Gaffney asked Gohmert to comment on McCain’s “hobnobbing with jihadists” during his recent trip to Syria.

Gohmert brought up a similar trip of McCain’s to Libya, where he feels McCain’s policy to depose Moammar Gaddafi unleashed the Muslim extremist forces that later attacked the American Consulate in Benghazi.

“If it had not been for Senator John McCain and President Obama being for what we knew at the time included Al Qaida anti-rebel forces, then we would still have a U.S. ambassador and three others alive today, because Benghazi would not have happened. By giving power to the rebel forces that included Al Qaida, 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’s any lesson, the people he met with who wants us to help should be very careful about what Senator McCain’s support could mean for them.”

The Texas Rep is alluding to McCain’s mysterious visit to Syria, meeting with “rebels” who are being aided by the US, a similar trip to one made to Libya.
