92Y Flashback: Newt Gingrich On Iran, North Korea, Israel And More
In a televised candidates’ debate late last month, The Wall Street Journalreported, “Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich called for replacing the leadership of Iran and said that could be accomplished within a year, adopting a more aggressive posture toward the U.S. adversary than advocated by the rest of the Republican field or by President Barack Obama.”
The views expressed by Gingrich in that debate follow the same ideas he expressed at 92nd Street Y in 2007. During that appearance with Charlie Rose, Gingrich called the Iran dictatorship a “mortal threat” to The United States, and told Rose, “We have to be absolutely dedicated to replacing” the regime.
Watch the video clip below to hear those comments and more, including Gringrich’s comments on North Korea and the Israel/Palestinian relationship.
You can purchase the full program, Newt Gingrich with Charlie Rose at 92nd Street Y on February 15, 2007, on DVD at Amazon or as an audio file at Audible.com.
