A couple weeks back I posted about what you could do when 2 wars were not enough — invade your ally! Yes, we are running across the Afghan/Pakistan border when necessary (when we want?) to “take out” Al Qaeda operatives if we have “good intelligence” that they are nearby. Marines mostly are sent to do this.
Anyway, I think it is a pretty bad idea because we don’t have many friends in the middle east and Pakistan is not liking this so much. (I wonder how we would feel if some country were doing this to us?) Anyway, McCain chastized Barack Obama for saying he also agrees with this policy not because it is WRONG but because you should not say it “out loud.” Right — you should keep it a secret, deny, deny, deny (like we did about Cambodia and Laos) to protect the troops carrying out these illegal missions. But Palin, when pressed by a 20 something guy in a t-shirt (our best political reporter on Palin to date!!!! Give that man a job!!) also indicates she is in favor of it.
Nice – watch it here. Warning: she is increasingly adorable!
Bob says this is not as important because “it is a casual comment”. I agree but since she does not do many serious interviews, this is what we have to go on.
