What Sarah Palin Said To Charlie Gibson
Here is some of what Sarah Palin said in her first sit-down interview since becomming the GOP VP nominee.
On whether the US would have to go to war with Russia if Georgia joined NATO and Russia attacked Georgia:
“Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help. And we’ve got to keep an eye on Russia. For Russia to have exerted such pressure in terms of invading a smaller democratic country, unprovoked, is unacceptable.”
On her statement that the Iraq war is “a task from God.”:
“I would never presume to know God’s will or to speak God’s words. But what Abraham Lincoln had said, and that’s a repeat in my comments, was let us not pray that God is on our side in a war or any other time, but let us pray that we are on God’s side.”
On her saying “There is a plan and it is God’s plan.”:
“I believe that there is a plan for this world and that plan for this world is for good. I believe that there is great hope and great potential for every country to be able to live and be protected with inalienable rights that I believe are God-given, Charlie, and I believe that those are the rights to life and liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That, in my world view, is a grand — the grand plan.”
On whether she is sending her son, who is being deployed to Iraq, on a “task from God”:
I don’t know if the task is from God, Charlie. What I know is that my son has made a decision. I am so proud of his independent and strong decision he has made, what he decided to do and serving for the right reasons and serving something greater than himself and not choosing a real easy path where he could be more comfortable and certainly safer.Click here for reuse options!
