Speaker Gingrich on Saudi Arabia [from FNC's Joy Lin] -

"Let's be clear, the Saudis are not our allies. The Saudis are a monarchy who sustain the most extreme form of Islam and spend billions of dollars a year exporting their ideology around the world and teaching people to hate. And they subsidize madrassas that produce terrorists. And the fact is the Saudis have never been confronted by us because our political leaders have been afraid of the consequence of taking them on. Well if we become the number 1 supplier of oil in the world, and we are independent of energy, then we can say to the Saudis that your period of subsidizing terrorism is over."
