Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) this week accused the Obama administration of being influenced by members of the Muslim Brotherhood into ignoring that the threat from radical Islam.
In an interview with the conservative World Net Daily, Gohmert said that particularly in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, “it’s very clear to everybody but this administration that radial Islam is at war against us.”
“I’m hoping either this administration will wake up or a new one will come in in the next election before irreparable damage is done because radical Islam is at war with us,” Gohmert repeated. “This administration has so many Muslim Brotherhood members that have influence that they just are making wrong decisions for America.”
Gohmert blasted the decision to read bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev his Miranda rights, blaming Attorney General Eric Holder for blocking investigators from gathering information about additional threats to U.S. citizens.
“I guess, you know, with our attorney general having spent more time before being AG trying to help terrorists than trying to corral them, first impulse was let’s get him to stop talking,” Gohmert accused. “If it’s not bad enough that they bungled getting this guy picked up and his brother picked up and questioned before they blew up people in Boston, then now to get him to shut up when he has invaluable information potentially is just really egregious.”
Gohmert added that, “as smart as we’re told Eric Holder is, he knew the results of his actions would be to shut the terrorist up.”
