President Barack Obama is running a feckless foreign policy of appeasement that endangers the nation’s security, says Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich.

Obama is “the most dangerous president in modern American history,” the former House Speaker told CBS Tuesday. And defeating that president is “a duty of national security,” he said.

In particular, the administration is unwilling to stand up to Islamic-ruled countries, Gingrich said.

“Ask Secretary Clinton – why would she hold a meeting with the Organization of Islamic Countries at the State Department to talk about censoring anti-Islamic talk?,” he asked.

“Why is it that when a Moroccan man is picked up as trying to bomb the U.S. Capitol, the Obama administration can’t even accurately describe him? It’s against the rules of the federal government today to talk accurately about radicalism.”

Gingrich said he’s unimpressed with the fact that under Obama the United States has killed more members of al-Qaida than any previous administration, including kingpin Osama bin Laden.

“If it’s been so effective, it barely got a guy on Saturday who was trying to blow up the U.S. Capitol,” he said. “It’s been so effective that the Muslim Brotherhood is now the dominant party in Egypt and looking to get a nuclear weapon and breaking the treaty with Israel.”
