ABC interview edited to make Palin look bad?

It appears that ABC edited out important segments of some of Sarah Palin's answers. They also used the widely debunked quote about Palin saying the Iraq war was God's will. What Palin actually said was that we should pray that the war is God's will. In other words pray that we are doing to the will of God and not serving ourselves. This is the prayer of almost every religious person I know, without regard to their religion. Here is the complete quote.

"Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God. That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan."

Also regarding the question about Bush Doctrine there are several definitions of the doctrine. Bringing Democracy to the Middle East, preemptive war, If you harbor a terrorist you are a terrorist, and American unilateralism. All these are called the Bush Doctrine, so Palin was correct in asking for clarification.

Now that I have given this information up front I feel comfortable posting the interview. I hope everyone enjoys and feel free to leave comments and donate to my blog.


  1. I understand that Sean Hannity is having Sarah Palin on his radio and TV programs next Tues. He says that he's going to ask questions and then sit back and listen. No Editing!!! Yeah!!! Your Maven
