Newt Gingrich, Jan. 19, 2006: "I think it's quite clear . . . that bin Laden and his lieutenants are monitoring the American news media, they're monitoring public opinion polling, and I suspect they take a great deal of comfort when they see people attacking United States policies."

Newt Gingrich, April 10, 2006: "It was an enormous mistake for us to try to occupy [Iraq] after June of 2003. We have to pull back, and we have to recognize it."
