Newt Gingrich has been publicly taking Barack Obama to task for apologizing to Afghan President Karzai yet not demanding an apology for the death of two American troops or the injury of four others.
Newt Gingrich issued the following statement reacting to news of the murder of two US troops and the wounding of four others by an Afghan soldier.
'It is an outrage that President Obama is the one apologizing to Afghan President Karzai on the same day two American troops were murdered and four others injured by an Afghan soldier. It is Hamid Karzai who owes the American people an apology, not the other way around.'
