Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) accused Sen.John McCain (R-AZ) on Wednesday of being complicit in the terror attacks onthe U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi,Libya last year and the deaths of fourAmericans, including the lateAmbassador Chris Stevens.Right-wingconspiracy theoristFrankGaffney asked Gohmert on Gaffney’sradio show this week what he thought of McCain’s recent trip toSyria— which Gaffney described as McCain “hobnobbing withJihadists” — and wondered whether “we’re going to get a properinvestigation of the Benghazi-Gate scandal,” a “scandal” Gaffneysaid he believes “Sen. McCain’s bad advice got us into.” Gohmertagreed that McCain is to blame for Benghazi because McCainsupported and advocated for the U.S. led war in Libya thatultimately helped Libyan rebels oust Muammar Qaddafi:GOHMERT: Yeah and then we know if it had not been for Sen. McCainand President Obama being for what we knew at the time includedal-Qaeda in the rebel forces then
we would still have a U.S.ambassador and three others alive today because Benghazi wouldnot have happened
 
with he wants us to help should be very careful about what Sen.McCain’s support could mean for them.Listen to the interview cliphere.GOP Rep blames McCain for Benghazi attacksStartingfrom the day after the attacksandcontinuing to this day, the Republicans have been politicizing the Benghazi attacks in anattempt to try to bring down President Obama and his administrationin one of the more absurd faux-scandal mongering episodes in recentmemory.In fact, McCainwas one of the GOP’s leading attack-dogson theObama administration over its handling of the Benghazi attacks. Nowthat he is being accused by some in his own Party of beingresponsible for the attacks themselves is an new and interesting — if not completely unsurprising — twist in the otherwise bizarre episodethat has been “Benghazi-Gate.”Full transcript:GAFFNEY: Two episodes that are on our mind, one is Sen. JohnMcCain (R-AZ) has been in Syria recently hobnobbing with Jihadistsabout the necessity of the United States of not only continuing tosupport them in various ways but to fund them and to arm them andbasically to start using its military forces to protect them. I’d like toget your thoughts on that sir as well as your current thinking aboutwhether we’re going to get a proper investigation of the Benghazi-Gate scandal, one of the imbroglios that I believe Sen. McCain’s badadvice got us into previously.GOHMERT: Well exactly and I’m not sure what to think about his trip apparently to Syria. We had seen his tweet about meeting withQaddafi in Libya at his ranch and then he said “Oh no somebody elsemust have tweeted from his phone.” But apparently there had beenmeetings with Qaddafi before yet they came after Qaddafi, he wasone of the early ones to sign on to going after Qaddafi.
