Newt Friday: Obama “Right” To Withdraw From Iraq; Newt Sunday: “A Decisive Defeat For The United States”
Newt Gingrich praised the Iraq withdrawal Friday, but then called it a “defeat” on Sunday.
“This is not about Obama,” he continued. “This is about the general effort that far transcends Iraq. That we have to really reassess our strategies in the region and what we think we’re accomplish. The president is right. You can’t just leave 3,000 or 5,000 troops there. They would simply become targets. If you’re not going to occupy the country, you have to withdraw.”
“The president has announced what will be seen by historians as a decisive defeat for the U.S. in Iraq. … After eight years, thousands of lives, hundreds of billions of dollars, we will leave in defeat. Don’t kid yourself, it is defeat. Iran is stronger.”Click here for reuse options!
