Newt Gingrich says that these attacks on our embassies and consulates aren’t just coincidental, but rather there are “substantial factions” who look for opportunities to attack America:
“There’s a substantial faction, particularly in Benghazi, which was sending people to Iraq to kill Americans. There’s 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 that’s part of a very long war that we’re going to be at for a very long time.”
Exactly. This isn’t 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 Romney’s 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.
