PALIN: 'ONLY FLAG IN MY OFFICE' IS ISRAELI
President Peres of Israel yesterday met for the first time with Governor Palin and with Senator McCain, who called the veteran Israeli statesman "my old friend." The warm handshake and exchange of broad smiles occurred during an international gathering known as the Clinton Global Initiative, hosted by President Clinton. "I wanted to meet you for many years," Ms. Palin told Mr. Peres, according to an aide to the president. "The only flag at my office is an Israeli flag," she was quoted as saying, "and I want you to know and I want Israelis to know that I am a friend."
She also has declared victory in Iraq (same link above):
Palin, describing the need for more troops in Afghanistan, said America has achieved "victory" in Iraq. It was an apparent misstep in Ms. Palin's third interview since agreeing to become Senator McCain's running mate nearly one month ago. The Alaska governor told CBS's Katie Couric that "a surge in Afghanistan also will lead us to victory there as it has proven to have done in Iraq," adding that "we cannot afford to retreat, to withdraw in Iraq." Pressed on why her state's proximity to Russia enhanced her foreign policy experience, Ms. Palin said: "Well, it certainly does, because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of." She added that when Prime Minister Putin "rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It's Alaska."
I have no comment... Rae
