Gingrich Calls Iranian President's Visit 'Unacceptable'

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich says the U.S. State Department should NOT have allowed Iranian President Mahmoud Amadinejad make public appearances during a visit to the U.S.

Gingrich called the decision to allow the Iranian leader to speak at Columbia Unversity and the National Press Club, quote, "very unacceptable."

Gingrich says the speech would be used a propaganda to boost his
profile around the world.

The former Republican leader says the decision was comparable to
inviting Adolph Hitler to speak.

He made the comments at a news conference prior to delivering a speech before the Nevada Policy Research Institute, a conservative think tank based in Las Vegas.
