Newt Gingrich, former Republican House Speaker, called the war on terror “phony” in a speech to a group of young conservatives in Washington, D.C. on Thursday.
Instead of the current strategy to fight terrorism, Gingrich said we should focus on energy independence. “We have to have a national energy strategy, which basically says to the Saudis, ‘We’re not going to rely on you.’”
From Political Radar: Gingrich calls War on Terror “Phony”
Did Newt read Noam Chomsky on his time off? He is now on the same page as Ralph Nader and Dennis Kucinich on GWOT. I happen to think he is wrong that the war is Phony, but he is right that the we need to develop a plan for energy independence.
