Newt Gingrich -- along with the right-wing echo chamber and short-memoried MSM -- spent the week condemning Speaker Pelosi for doing what Speaker Gingrich did just a decade before.

Glenn Greenwald documents the original news accounts of Gingrich's trip at Salon. It should also be noted that Dennis Hastert traveled to Colombia in 1997 to undermine President Clinton's policy towards that country. He even went so far as to say that the Columbian government should bypass the excutive and deal directly with Congress. IOKIYAR, though.
