Former Alaska Governor and potential 2010 Republican Presidential candidate Sarah Palin has blasted the White House and Barack Obama for not showing more support for the Libyan people in their demonstrations against Moammar Gaddafi.
On her Facebook page, Palin wrote that she found it “a little perplexing” to watch the Obama administration's reaction to events in Libya
There was a statement on the horrible earthquake in New Zealand, and certainly our hearts go out to all those affected by this horrible natural disaster, But nothing on the slaughter in Libya?, she pondered.
She also suggested NATO to establish “a no-fly zone so Libyan air forces cannot continue slaughtering the Libyan people.”
Palin described Gaddafi as “Osama before Osama hit the scene” emphasizing his strong connections to previous acts of terrorism.
“For four decades, this tyrant has held power. Gaddafi was Osama before Osama hit the scene,” she wrote.
“He ordered the bombing of a disco in Germany to kill Americans. When he paid the price for that – after President Reagan rightly ordered retaliation – he directed his agents to blow up Pan Am Flight 103. They did, and more than 250 innocent people died. Gaddafi tried to come in from the cold in 2003 – scared by the demonstration effect of Iraq. But we should have no illusions.
She also added that Gaddafi is a brutal killer and Libya – not to mention the world – would be better off if he were out of power. Now is the time to speak out. Speak out for the long-suffering Libyan people. Speak out for the victims of Gaddafi’s terror.”
Finally, she declared: We should not be afraid of freedom, especially when it comes to people suffering under a brutal enemy of America and Here's to freedom from Gaddafi for the people of Libya.
