More GOP Ignorance About National Security
Given that the entire GOP congressional leadership just loudly bleated that they know less about FBI procedure than the average moviegoer, maybe Newt Gingrich didn’t want to show how blitheringly ignorant he is. Josh Marshall:
Classic moment last night on The Daily Show when Newt Gingrich explained that it was okay to mirandize “shoe bomber” Richard Reid and not Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab because Reid, unlike Abdulmutallab, is a US citizen.
Only, of course, Reid is a British citizen.
