Palin Gets the Facts Wrong in ABC Interview

Good Morning America indeed.

In his interview with Sarah Palin that aired this morning on Good Morning America, ABC’s Charlie Gibson challenged the governor on whether she has any national security experience. Some highlights from the interview:

On National Security Credentials:

GIBSON: When I asked John McCain about your national security credentials, he cited the fact that you have commanded the Alaskan National Guard and that Alaska is close to Russia. Are those sufficient credentials?

PALIN: Let me speak specifically about a credential that I do bring to this table, Charlie, and that’s with the energy independence…
On Alaska National Guard:

GIBSON: Have you ever given any kind of command decision to the Alaska National Guard?

PALIN: We have called up National Guardsmen to help in other states who have gone in emergency status. We have assisted there.
