Palin on Fox: Asking Questions
Here’s Sarah Palin making her debut on Fox News, admitting that during the lead-up to her 2008 vice-presidential debate with Joe Biden she “questioned” whether Iraq might have been responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks. (This is the second half of her appearance on the O’Reilly show.)
Interviewed by Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly on his show “The O’Reilly Factor,” Palin trashed many of the critical accounts of her candidacy in the new book “Game Change.” But one story from the book that Palin did not say was “made up” or “a lie” was the description of her uncertainty as to whether Iraq had a hand in the planning of the Sept. 11 attacks.
“I did talk a lot to [campaign strategist] Steve Schmidt about the history of the war and where the attackers could have come from,” Palin said of her debate prep during the fall of 2008 — more than five years after the start of the war in Iraq and seven years after the terrorist attacks that hit New York and Washington.
“I do admit to asking questions about that,” she said.
