This is an excellent exchange between CNN’s Piers Morgan and Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich regarding the recent Qur’an burnings in Afghanistan and the subsequent apologies that have come from the Obama administration. Morgan’s attempts to trap Gingrich fell flat (we always like it when CNN looks bad). When asked to explain his position that Afghanistan should be apologizing to the United States, Gingrich pointed to the burnings of Christian churches all across the Middle East that have not garnered one demand from the Obama administration for an apology from the Muslim world.
Also, take note that Gingrich brings up Allen West as someone who can further explain the situation because he’s lived it. Interestingly, Gingrich has previously said that he would consider West as a running mate.
Anyway, check out this exchange via MediaIte:
