Newt Corrects Another Mistake

Newt Gingrich has officially apologized for statements he made on Fox Television that terrorists involved in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks entered the United States from Canada.

The London Free Press ran a short piece that says the apology came after Canadian Ambassador to the U.S., Frank McKenna wrote Gingrich telling him, "none of the 19 hijackers entered the U.S. from either Canada or Mexico, information confirmed by former U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft and the 9/11 Commission investigating the attacks."

In an April 19th appearance on Fox News Channel, Gingrich said: "Far more of the 9-11 terrorists came across from Canada than from Mexico."
