Sarah Palin On U.S. Military Intervention in Syria: “Until We Have a Commander-in-Chief Who Knows What He’s Doing, Let Allah Sort it Out”


I long for the day when Sarah Palin will disappear from the political landscape because every time she opens her mouth she reminds us of why she was so unqualified for the vice presidency. Trying to sound knowledgeable about the Syrian crisis, Palin, who spoke at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Saturday, weighed in on President Obama’s decision to arm the rebels, saying, “Until we have a commander-in-chief who knows what he is doing…let Allah sort it out.” Really, Sarah, like you knew what you were doing as Alaska’s governor?

It should be noted this is a stark departure from her former running mate, John McCain, who wants to see the U.S. intervene by arming rebels. Palin argued that the U.S. shouldn’t intervene in any Middle East conflict as long as President Obama remains in office. Er, why?  Because George W. Bush and George H. W. Bush had such a great track record in the Middle East, right? Amazing.

Palin also used her speech to blast the “good ole boys” in Congress and she advised them to follow the lead of freshman Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), a Tea Party darling. The former governor and Fox News contributor said the U.S. is “becoming a totalitarian surveillance state” and that she is listening more and more to libertarians in the Republican Party.
