Sarah Palin says ‘We’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies’
In an interview with Sarah Palin she accidentally said ‘We’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies’ as she answered the anchorman’s question.
The following is the transcribe of her interview from a radio station which you can check here.
Interviewer: How would you handle a situation like the one that just developed in North Korea?
Palin: Well, North Korea, this is stemming from a greater problem, when we’re all sitting around asking, ‘Oh no, what are we going to do,’ and we’re not having a lot of faith that the White House is going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is going to do. So this speaks to a bigger picture that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy. But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies – we’re bound to by treaty….
Interviewer: South Korean.
Palin: Yes, and we’re also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.
It’s been a regular incident to former Alaska governor to have a tongue slip but I was just wondering is it really normal for her or it just a proof of John Mccain’s advisors about her knowledge.
[M]embers of her traveling party met Palin at the Rtitz-Carlton near Reagan airport, in Pentagon City, Virginia – and found that, although she’d made some progress with her memorization and studies, her grasp of rudimentary facts and concepts was minimal. Palin couldn’t explain why North and South Korea were separate nations. She didn’t know what the Fed did. Asked who attacked America on 9/11, she suggested several times that it was Saddam Hussain. And asked to identify the enemy that her son would be fighting in Iraq, she drew a blank.
The comment can be found at Page 397 of the paperback edition “Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime” which described events from September 2008, a book on presidential campaign in 2008.
