Rep. Louie Gohmert Falsely Claims Pres. Obama Wanted al-Qaeda and Muslim Brotherhood to Take Over Libya
Appearing on Frank Gaffney’s anti-Muslim radio show, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) launched into a bizarre tirade criticizing the Obama administration’s decision to provide air support in the international campaign against Qaddafi last year.
Rep. Gohmert said: “What was all the rage a year and a half ago? It was the Arab Spring and how wonderful it was! This administration really embraced blowing out Mubarak – yes, do it up by all means – getting rid of Qaddafi, it wasn’t enough to send verbal accolades, this administration sent planes and bombs and support to oust Qaddafi so that al-Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood could take over Libya.”
