GOD LOVE HER. Whether she ever holds elected office again, political celebrity superstar Sarah Palin has a very important role to play in checks and balances, especially by calling out President Obama for wanting to have a smoozefest with the Russians on missile defense. Here's what she wrote on Facebook a>yesterday:
As Governor I fought the Obama Administration’s plans to cut funds for missile defense in Alaska. So imagine how appalled and surprised I was to read this article by former Clinton CIA Director James Woolsey, appropriately titled “Giving Away the Farm,” concerning President Obama’s latest bizarre actions relating to missile defense.Don't know about you, but I think this kind of exposure is very important to our national security and thank her for her timely political blast. Read more on her Facebook page or at Business Insider.
President Obama wants to give Russia our missile defense secrets because he believes that we can buy their friendship and cooperation with this taxpayer-funded gift. But giving military secrets and technologies to a rival or competitor like Russia is just plain dumb. You can’t buy off Russia. And giving them advanced military technology will not create stability. What happens if Russia gives this technology (or sells it!) to other countries like Iran or China? After all, as Woolsey points out, Russia helped Iran with its missile and nuclear programs. Or what happens if an even more hardline leader comes to power in the Kremlin?
