The Newt Mistake: Fear-Mongering Again and Getting It Wrong

Disgraced former House Majority Leader, Newt Gingrich, is a consummate BS artist. When the facts don't fit your agenda, invent new facts. 

Josh Marshall of Talking Points Memo described the moment this way
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.
