In her first television interview - she first tried to deny that she said, "U.S. Soldiers on a task that is from God." She was caught, and Gibson confronted her.
GIBSON: You said recently, in your old church, "Our national leaders are sending U.S. soldiers on a task that is from God." Are we fighting a holy war?
PALIN: You know, I don't know if that was my exact quote.
GIBSON: Exact words.
She admitted never having met a foreign head of state but says that it may be necessary go to war with Russia over Georgia.
GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn't we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?
PALIN: Perhaps so.
Think about this. Our military has been decimated, severely stretched fighting a war in a country against an enemy that has no army, no air force, no navy, no diplomats, and we are expected to go to all out war with Russia over Georgia? Can you imagine this level of idiocy - from a person in a position to lead America? I guess it must be more of that "mission from god."
She also demonstrated was not familiar with the Bush Doctrine of preemptive attack, but she agreed with it when Gibson told her what it was.
Now you know why McCain has been shielding her from the media. I can't wait to see her debate and see her face question from the public and national media.
