Skip to comments.Newt Gingrich on Libya/Egypt attacks: We need to be standing up for and defending freedom (CNN)
Posted on 09/12/2012 9:32:05 PM PDT by JediJones
Newt Gingrich says that these attacks on our embassies and consulates arent just coincidental, but rather there are substantial factions who look for opportunities to attack America:
Theres a substantial faction, particularly in Benghazi, which was sending people to Iraq to kill Americans. Theres a substantial faction in Egypt which wants to defeat the United States and destroy Israel. That faction looks for opportunities to do things to hurt the United States and yesterday was the example of an attack thats part of a very long war that were going to be at for a very long time.
Exactly. This isnt about a movie about Muhammad. This is about people who hate America who will use anything as a foil to do us harm.
Gingrich also defends Romneys statement yesterday, which is clearly coming under false attacks by the Obama campaign, and says that we must be standing up for and defending freedom against these attacks.

Newt for Secretary of State.
4:15 to 5:00 is a strong statement by Newt about free speech.
These days, 45% of those living in this country believe that freedom is overrated. Those dung heaps will give up everything for government handouts and freebies.
Video runs 7:22 minutes.
Newt did an excellent job schooling the two Obama lapdogs on CNN!
Thanks for this video, JediJones.
Its never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values.
Finally Mitt shows he has a pair.
In 1979 we had a weak president -- Carter -- who invited attack of our embassy in an Islamic country. The Muslims knew Carter would do nothing.
Now in 2012 Obama's failed leadership has inspired Islamic radicals to attack not one, but two embassies on the anniversary of 9 11.
Nuke Iran now.
0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel taking that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.
Obama is toast and will be gone.......nuke Iran....nuke Iran now....they are asking for war....give it to them and plenty of it..... nuke them now and nuke them again....and nuke anyone else that makes threats and has its leaders say death to Israel and death to America..... NUKE EM
This is really beginning to grate. I can’t even count the number of times some rat news-host or reporter reports that the embassy apology letter PRECEDED the flag-destruction at the Cairo embassy. Yes, yes, we know that. But the embassy doubled-down AFTER the flag-destruction, repeating the “apology,” and no one seems to remind the news-folks of that—including Newt in this interview. Not to mention that it took Romney’s condemnation of the letter to spur TOTUS into a semi-correction of the embassy’s ineptness. I say “semi-” because he has yet to refer to Cairo as a separate incident.
I doubt that anyone has more historical recall than he. But his own ‘shoot-first’ tendencies won’t endear him to the dem Senate (if it’s still dem by consent-time).
It doesn’t matter who it is, the Rats are always going to act like spoiled children.
Thanks very much for the ping, nutmeg.
He needs to be Attorney General or Secretary of State.
Newt did well, so did Liz, we need more of them: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2930489/posts
Sarah for Energy Secretary. Bolton for Sec State. Rudy for AG (oops, blasphemy).
Onyx, I DO expect Mitt to use Newt expertese. There are so many areas that he could help.
I so pray you're right, (and you almost always are)!
No more messing around with those important departments.
Sorry, Bolton is a diplomat and for homosexuals in the military, but he’s likely Romney’s choice, and Rudy would be a good AG, but I’d much prefer Newt. That entire department needs a fumigation and no more nonsense from activist judges.
BTW dad has been selected to go to DC with HonorFlight.org
to see the WWII Memorial. I'm going to accompany him. He is SO excited.
God I love Newt. Brilliant man and he knows his stuff. It would be a sin for Romney not to use him in a cabinet position and what a fabulous Sec of State he would make
Woo-Hoo! That’s wonderful, fabulous, awesome news!
God bless and keep you both, dearest hoosiermama!
Hiya, dearest you!
I echo your every word!
God bless and keep you and Newt.
Yep. Newt would be a great addition to the cabinet. Whether State or elsewhere, but press secretary would be too trivial a position for that mind. He could do great, but his talents could best be served elsewhere.
You’re so right, and if only!
The US needs educating and then the world. He’s capable of both.
He IS so excited.
The first thing he better use Newt for is a debate coach.
I second Onyx’s responds - WOOHOO!!! and add Good Deal.
Hope it is a safe trip and a memorable visit.
Please thank your dad for his service.
So glad Newt didn’t give this speech as a duet with Callista....
Good, but I’d say “Newt, for whatever Newt wants”, he is still the brightest bulb in the box, the cream of the crop, beyond a shadow of a doubt, way out in front of everybody else.
” I’d like to see Newt, Cain, Palin Boltin analyze, dissect, stir up and regurgitate a couple of the Cabinet Departments. “
The 40+ Marxists/Maoists in the current cabinet need flushing. Newt, Cain, Palin,Bolton.....put them all to work.
Thanks very much, Mr T.
Her Dad is very special. Loves Sarah Palin.
I’m thrilled for both.
God bless you and keep you, too.
Absolutely! I want to see Senator DeMint as Majority Leader and Mike Lee or Rand Paul second in command. No more damn squishes.
” Absolutely! I want to see Senator DeMint as Majority Leader “
Could we get this lucky ?
I'd throw a party for somethin(k)g like that.......
Well “Professor’ Gingrich trying to educate the talking heads once again came as no surprise. What did surprise me was watching how Romney handled the vicious press yesterday — resolute and outraged. After seeing how well he stood up to them, I’m confident he’ll do quite well in the upcoming debates.
