Gingrich's helicopter claim shot down

Presidential candidate exaggerates on bin Laden raid, food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid

Republican Newt Gingrich mistakenly claimed on "Meet the Press" that a U.S. helicopter involved in the Osama bin Laden raid "was shot down." There's no evidence of that. On domestic affairs, Gingrich exaggerated or overstated the facts on food stamps, Medicare and Medicaid fraud, and the uninsured—making bad situations appear even worse.
