Sarah Palin wants terrorists to know how the United States would deal with them if she were president.Speaking Saturday at the National Rifle Association's "Stand And Fight" rally at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate accused the Obama administration of instating counterterrorism policies that "coddle adversaries."
"Come on. Enemies, who would utterly annihilate America, they who'd obviously have information on plots, to carry out Jihad. Oh, but you can't offend them, can't make them feel uncomfortable, not even a smidgen," she said. "Well, if I were in charge, they would know that waterboarding is how we'd baptize terrorists."
Saturday's rally was part of the NRA's annual meeting, which drew thousands to Indianapolis.

Torture is immoral and diminishes America's standing in the world. I hope the christians on this board will take offense to water boarding being compared to baptism.

I can't believe people still care about what that blowhard has to say. She's long past proven that she is a tool, so we should simply put her on ignore.

She is a former governor and nominee for VP of the US. These kind of comments should not be made by someone with her credentials and this portrays Americans in a negative light.

I bet most terrorists would rather listen to their own fireing squads than to her.

Interesting how her running mate was tortured and has denouced inhanced interrogation techniques. Sarah Palin gotta be the worst decision of John McCain's life.

If Sarah plain actually ever made it to the whitehouse as the main candidate...I would look the other way on torture.

Portrays Americans in a negative light?

Didn't you just finish complaining to me that you wanted the US to go after Kuwaitis for supporting terrorists and now you're upset that Sarah Palin doesn't support terrorists. How about if Sarah Palin offered to waterboard all the Kuwaitis who are sending money to support terrorists in Syria - would that be okay?

The only way to "go after terrorists" is by torturing them?

Are you purposely being this stupid?

Just trying to see what basis there is for the different angles you take to attack subjects.

I would add, just in passing, that there's nothing in the quotes from Palin you posted that implies any reference to Christianity, with the exception that Baptism is a sacrament in some forms. The word baptism is also used, however, secularly to refer to cleansing and also to refer to an introduction into a new way of life. She may simply be saying that she'd show terrorists what she'd do to someone who wants to destroy her society and country.

That said, Sarah Palin is no longer a politician in the normal sense of the word and is much more a political commentator, much in he style of a Bill Maher - they feed off controversy and saying outrageous things to get media attention. Clearly she succeeded here.

Torture is a huge scar on America's reputation abroad. How are we different than any of this other countries that commit human rights violations? People like sarah palin who not only support torture, but try turn into some religious thing portray Americans in a bad light.

Sarah Palin is a political pundit. She really just needs to shut up.

Where did i call the use of torture on anyone?

Im almost 100% that she meant baptism in the Christian source of the world.

Shes a complete and utter moron.

I've spent a lot of time "abroad" and in my opinion you are dead wrong. There are certainly many in the media who like to trumpet the same opinion you just did but the reality is that the your average Englishmen, Frenchmen, Finlander, Russian, etc.. could really care less. If waterboarding is the most visible scar America bears then I'd say we're in pretty good shape.

And so you did without even referencing the wrongs of your own beloved dictator. Sarah's comments are ugly, I don't care for them, but they pale in comparison to the lies and actions of this regime.

Crazy talibornagain lady is crazy. Remember when Hannity acted so tough and said he would gladly be waterboarded to prove its safety? Yeah, you guessed it, he pussed out.

Hitchens didn't, he was an actual man of his words.
