This weekend, former Alaska Governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin took time to explain her vision of how U.S. counter-terrorism policy would change if she were president.
During an appearance at the NRA’s Annual Meeting on Saturday in Indianapolis, Palin promoted the use of torture to obtain information stating:
“Now I do have to apologize for that. I am sorry. Not all intolerant, anti-freedom, leftist liberals are hypocrites. I’m kidding – yes, they are.
And they are not right policies that poke our allies in the eyes and coddles adversaries instead of putting the fear of God in our enemies. Come-on. Enemies who would utterly anihilate America.
They obviously have information on plots that would carry out Jihad. Oh, but you can’t offend them. Can’t make them feel uncomfortable. Not even a smidgeon.
Well, if I were in charge, they would know that water boarding is how we baptize terrorists.“
