Gingrich Says "Political Correctness" Hindering Security Efforts; Says it's Time to "Discriminate" Against Extremist Islam - Video 12/31/09
Here is video of former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Fox and Friends today where he said the "entire approach" of the Obama Administration to the War on Terror is wrong. Gingrich said we are in a "real war" as evidenced by the attempted attack on Northwest Flight 253.
As a result, Gingrich said we need to "profile" people on the basis of their behavior. Had we done so, Abdul Farouk Abdulmutallab would never have been allowed on that plane. Gingrich believes "political correctness" kept us from doing what is simply common sense.
Gingrich said the Obama Administration's approach to terrorism is wrong because they do not approach it as a true war, but rather as a law enforcement issue. He also said "political correctness" is keeping us from targeting the extremist wing of Islam, which is the root of the enemy we face.
"We should methodically isolate, and frankly discriminate against people who belong to the extremist community." - Newt Gingrich
