Posted on 03/06/2012 6:15:41 AM PST by RoosterRedux
Newt Gingrich said on Monday he believes Israel shouldn't give the Obama administration any advance warning if it decides to attack Iran over its nuclear weapons program, saying the administration can't be trusted to keep the information secret.
"If I were the Israelis, I wouldn't give this administration one minute's notice, because someone will leak it," he said on Fox News' Hannity. "When you have an operational secret, you want to keep it as close hold as possible."
Gingrich is scheduled to speak before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee on Tuesday along with fellow candidates Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum.
Special Section: Campaign 2012 Assessing his Super Tuesday chances, he told host Sean Hannity that he would comfortably carry his home state of Georgia and do well elsewhere. He flew across Tennessee in a last- minute attempt to persuade undecided voters on the day before they go to the polls. He has sought to boost his appeal in other Southern states by challenging other candidates to debate him in either Mississippi or Alabama next week.
"I think we're going to carry Georgia four or five times by Romney's size [of victory] in Michigan," he said. "We're surging in Tennessee and Oklahoma, we have a good chance to pick up delegates in Ohio. We see opportunities in North Dakota, and even Massachusetts where conservative republicans regard Romney as a liberal governor and there is a faction that would like to split. "

Newt will get a rousing reception at AIPAC!
WOW I wish the primary season would go on forever, just to be keep Newt talking...and to have an outlet for his thoughts
Newt’s got the courage. Thank you Newt.
Indeed he does.
Despite all of his flaws, Newt is still head and shoulders above the rest of the field.
Not only do I agree with Newt, but I'll raise the ante. I think the Obamessiah will try to shoot down the Israeli attack. He hates Israel. He has since she was a young olive tree.
If it means US forces being put at risk in any way, they had better damn well give us some warning. As for keeping any attack a secret, I would imagine that Iran has eyes on Israeli airfields. It’s pretty hard to launch 100+ sorties from a small country without someone becoming aware.
Especially considering who and what we currently have in the White House.
If I remember correctly, they’ve already ‘outed’ Israel in the past ..... Obama & thugs will sabotage any Israeli attack and Israelis will die. It’s the old ‘fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me’. Bibi is no fool. If he will “not allow his people to live under the shadow of annihilation”, I don’t think he’ll risk their lives by telling Obama when he’s going to attack .... and attack he will .... no choice.
EMP attack? I saw this mentioned somewhere.
I suppose they could, but EMP attacks don’t stop at a targeted countries borders; there is that to consider.
I wonder if someday Newt will bring up Sheriff Joe’s findings of usurpation, forgery and fraud on the part of Obama, the Democrats and the media.
I don’t think Israel has the resources for a sustained attack on Iran. And the U.S. & Israel know that.
