Sarah Palin says she owes the nation an apology.
The former Alaska governor said she owes America a “global apology” for losing the 2008 presidential election and allowing President Barack Obama to take the White House.
Speaking with Sean Hannity of Fox News, Palin said she was dismayed by Obama’s long-term strategy for defeating ISIS, saying that the nation deserves a more decisive leader.
“As I watched the speech last night, Sean, the thought going through my mind is, ‘I owe America a global apology. Because John McCain, through all of this, John McCain should be our president,'” Palin said.
Sarah Palin added that the threats from ISIS need to be taken seriously.
“So when Barack Obama, like the rest of us, hear these bad guys, these terrorists, promising that they will raise the flag of Allah over our White House, for the life of me I don’t know why he does not take this serious, the threat. Because yes, it’s more than a vision,” Palin said. “They’re telling — just like Hitler did all those years ago, when a war could’ve been avoided, because Hitler, too, did not hide his intentions. Well ISIS, these guys aren’t hiding their intentions either.”
U.S. officials say those intentions may include infiltrating the United States. Francis Taylor, the under secretary for intelligence and analysis at the Department of Homeland Security, told a Senate panel that militants have been caught on social media discussing ways to infiltrate the United States.
“There have been Twitter and social-media exchanges among ISIL adherents across the globe speaking about that as a possibility,” Taylor said response to a question from Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican.
The criticism of Obama’s ISIS plan is not unusual for Sarah Palin. The former vice presidential nominee has been ramping up her criticism of Barack Obama in what some believe could be an exploration for a 2016 presidential run.
