Tony Lee: Carney falsely accused Sarah Palin of politicizing Afghanistan

Posted by Sarah Palin Web Brigade on April 24, 2012

From an article by Tony Lee at Big Government:

It has often been said that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin lives rent-free in the heads of President Barack Obama and those of his top brass in the White House.

On Friday, this was evident when the Obama Administration, which has even attempted to politicize the Trayvon Martin tragedy, accused her of politicizing a war in Afghanistan of which she did not speak.

After getting a question about “some Republicans, including Senator [Jeff] Sessions and Governor Palin,” questioning and criticizing President Obama’s general leadership abilities in light of a host of recent incidents that reflect poorly on him at a White House press briefing, Obama’s press secretary, Jay Carney, said Palin had politicized the war in Afghanistan.

The reporter never specifically said that either Palin or Sessions specifically tied the photos of American soldiers posing with Taliban corpses to Obama’s failed leadership, but that is what Carney wanted to hear, which set the tone for his answer.

Sessions and Palin did nothing of the sort. Sessions linked the Secret Service scandal to other scandals like Solyndra and the GSA. Palin definitively did not say anything political about the troops last night on FOX News’s “On the Record,” when she was forced to comment about the fired Secret Service agent who in, 2008, while on Palin’s detail, wrote on his Facebook page that he was “checking out” the former vice presidential candidate.

In fact, the only mention Palin, who has a son serving in Afghanistan, made of the troops in Afghanistan was when she said, “Thank God that we have the United States military fighting for the defense of freedom.”

After saying the wife of a Secret Service agent who was fired for soliciting prostitutes in Colombia should force him to sleep in the doghouse (and poking fun at Obama’s admission that he had sampled dogs as a child in Indonesia), Palin pivoted toward the many symptoms of Obama’s leadership deficit.

Palin said that it was “a symptom of government run amok” and listed the higher unemployment and less energy security since Obama took office, and she noted that “if the president isn’t held accountable to make sure he’s appointing the right people in these positions to help run our government, then we’re in a world of hurt if we can’t hold him accountable.”

Palin then mentioned that the top thing Obama is responsible for is the budget, and the country has gone over three years without a budget.


Carney obviously was ignorant of what Palin said the night before on FOX News, but, instead of doing what a responsible press secretary would do and not comment on things about which he knows nothing, Carney could not resist an opportunity to tear down Palin.

And Carney has license to do so because members of the mainstream media either know too little to know that Carney was wrong or are so biased against conservatives that they would rather sacrifice some of their journalistic principles so long as the GOP is harmed.
