Louie Gohmert is in Trouble with John McCain, You Guys

John McCainSo, okay, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R) Texas might have chosen his words better when making the charge that John McCain has been fraternizing with al Qaeda leaders for three years.

But then, again, John McCain.

TheDC:

John McCain took a swipe at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert in an interview with NBC’s Brian Williams Wednesday night.

During the interview, Williams brought up a statement Gohmert made last week at the Values Voter Summit claiming that the Republican Arizona senator supports al Qaida. Speaking at an event at the conservative conference, Gohmert referred to McCain as a “guy who’s been to Syria and supported al Qaida and rebels.”

McCain told Williams that it isn’t worth responding to someone who “has no intelligence.” [TheDC]

Zing! That was masterfully non responsive.

Except that Sen. McCain has been doing exactly as Rep. Gohmert alleges.

Background (Sept. 6, 2013):

While the mainstream media admonishes John McCain for playing a poker game on his iPhone during the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations hearings on Syria last Wednesday, no one seems to have noticed that the Republican Senator has,  for several years, been supporting and mingling with Al Qaeda commanders in the field in blatant violation of international law as well as in breach of US anti-terrorism legislation.

In April 2011, Senator John McCain described the Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Libya as follows:

“I have met with these brave fighters, and they are not Al-Qaeda. To the contrary: They are Libyan patriots who want to liberate their nation. We should help them do it.” – Senator John McCain in Benghazi, Libya April 22, 2011.

One of the rebels’ leading figures was Abdel Hakim Belhaj … a member of the defunct Libyan Islamic Fighting Group LIFG), a terrorist organization on both the UN Security Council and the US State Department lists. [Read here]

So there is that.

Now, RG would never deign to suggest that John McCain knowingly set out to give aid and support to America’s enemies, but the evidence is now solid that he is just as stupid as any liberal on the Hill in ignoring the threat that al Qaeda still poses to the U.S. and the world.

Obligatory John McCain Disclaimer: Yeah, Vietnam, Hanoi Hilton blah, blah, blah, blah. Never forget it. Now, about the 35 years since…

H/T Now that I’ve taken care of that… HELP! I have been stuck on Planet Tucker for two days and my RSC thrusters won’t fire! SOMEBODY HELP! HELP! HELP! … HELLO? SOMEBODY?
