As violence in Egypt and Libya unfold, the Obama administration is continuing to get criticism for its handling of the protests. Sarah Palin hammered President Obama for being “naïve” about trying to work with the Muslim world on Sean Hannity‘s show tonight. Palin argued that the United States should not be trying to promote democracy in nations that “do not have any values for civilized societies.”
Hannity opened the segment telling Palin he was trying to “contain his anger” over the Obama administration apologizing in the midst of the attacks. Palin wondered how much longer the United States would “spill our blood and treasure” in countries like Egypt and Libya.
“[We are trying to] promote democracy in places that do not have any values for civilized societies, values like respecting minorities and women’s rights and independent judiciary and rule of law. How much longer do we not support and fund Sharia democracy?”
Palin dismissed the film Innocence of Muslims as a “red herring” and found it remarkable that the Obama administration has been going out of its way to condemn the movie. She then blamed the violence on the Obama administration for “drop[ping] the ball” in the war on terror.
Conversely, both Hannity and Palin lauded Romney for his reaction to the violence, and Hannity reminded viewers of Obama’s “apology tour” when the president made a big speech in Cairo three years ago. Palin said that Obama was “naïve” and has put the United States in a “weaker position” in the world. The segment ended with both Hannity and Palin bashing the Obama administration over a report suggesting they had advance knowledge on the attacks.
