Newt Gingrich Explains Flip-Flop On Libya

FOX News: In the interview Sunday, Gingrich tried to reconcile seemingly conflicting statements he's given about U.S. military involvement in Libya. Gingrich earlier said the United States should back a no-fly zone. After President Obama sent in the U.S. military to help establish one, Gingrich said he would not have supported intervention.

Asked to clarify, Gingrich said Sunday that the United States should have been for replacing Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi without using the military. But he said now that the United States is involved militarily, the goal should be to replace Qaddafi.

"If you're not in the lake, don't jump in. Once you're in the lake, swim like crazy," he said.
