Gingrich: Afghanistan may be 'undoable' mission
GOP candidate Gingrich says Afghanistan may be 'harder, deeper' problem, 'undoable' mission
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' Republican presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich says he thinks U.S. involvement in the region around Afghanistan may be risking the lives of young troops in a mission that "may not be doable."

Gingrich says the U.S. should reassess the region and ask whether there isn't "a harder, deeper problem" that can't be solved with military force on the scale the U.S. and its allies are willing to commit.

The former House speaker said he reached his conclusion after learning that Pakistan had harbored Osama bin Laden for seven years outside a military city, and that their investigation resulted in punishing the people who assisted American intelligence, rather than those who made it possible for bin Laden to live undetected for so long.



Gingrich made his comments on "Fox News Sunday."
