Sarah Palin, former governor of Alaska and John McCain’s running mate in 2008 U.S. presidential election, made a verbal slip on Glenn Beck’s radio show Wednesday when she was asked how she would handle the situation with North Korea.
She said, “This speaks to a bigger picture here that certainly scares me in terms of our national security policy."
“But obviously, we’ve got to stand with our North Korean allies.”
She was then corrected by the show’s host and said, “Yeah, and we are also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes.”
Palin, who is said to be considering running for presidential nomination for the Republican Party in 2012, has been criticized for her lack of knowledge on foreign policy.
According to the NY Daily News report, Palin infamously declared Alaska is “right over the border” from Russia in 2008, in explaining why her home state’s proximity to the country gives her foreign policy experience.
