Palin Calls Afghans ‘Savages’ | In an interview with Greta Van Susteren scheduled to air tonight, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) criticized President Obama for apologizing to “savages in Afghanistan.” All three leading Republican presidential have attacked the president for apologizing for the accidental Quran burning on an an American base, and in the interview, Politico reports Palin picked up that theme and went a bit farther:
“We’re a very pro-military state up here. We recognize what it is that our men and women sacrifice for all of us to keep us secure. And at this point, we’re watching Obama with his naïve apologies to savages in Afghanistan who turn around and kill our soldiers,” she said, in an apparent reference to the president’s recent apology to Afghan President Hamid Karzai for the unintentional burnings of Qurans at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan.
