In an interview with Alaska Business Monthly shortly after she took office in 2007, Palin was asked about the upcoming surge. She said she hadn't thought about it. "I've been so focused on state government, I haven't really focused much on the war in Iraq," she said. "I heard on the news about the new deployments, and while I support our president, Condoleezza Rice and the administration, I want to know that we have an exit plan in place; I want assurances that we are doing all we can to keep our troops safe."

It's hard to imagine a person who is running for VP of the USA to not having an opinion on the Iraqi surge. Thats all MCCain talks about. For Palin to say she hasn't focused much on the Iraqi war is beyond belief.
At least she wants an exit plan. Wonder what John thinks of that since he thinks we might stay in Iraq for the next 100 years.
