This morning on New Day, Newt Gingrich came on to discuss Barack Obama's proposal to combat ISIS in Iraq — and, judging by his response, thinks that Obama isn't recognizing that this is a problem of "radical Islam."
"Nobody wants to tell the truth," he complained. "The truth is this is a radical Islamist group. They say openly if you don't convert, we'll kill you. It turns out they actually mean it. There's no complexity…The president couldn't even honestly describe ISIS last night because it goes against his ideology."
And, just to be clear, that ideology is that ISIS "has a very clear religious background, just as Hamas does, just as Boko Haram does. There's a war against Christians across the region, and the fact is that we've got to be prepared to be honest about this," he told CNN's New Day.
