Adelson's millions come tipped with missiles aimed at Iran Newt Gingrich's South Carolina win in the Republican primary thrusts the former speaker, and his benefactor Sheldon Adelson, back into the heart of the political discussion. And while much has been made of Gingrich's comments on Palestinians--they're "terrorists," an "invented people"--less attention has been paid to Gingrich's evolving positions on Iran and Adelson's influence on the shift. Wired's Spencer Ackerman has a comic, if scary, look at Gingrich's proposed plans to overthrow the Iranian regime. But he also notes Gingrich's past, less hawkish position on Iran. --- there you have it folks, the same people who fund the democrats, fund the republicans. you have to kiss Israeli ass before you can be President of America. Thank you very much.
