The Hill reports:
HERZLIYA, Israel — Sarah Palin (R) has canceled tentative plans to visit Israel early this year.
Media reports in December indicated that Palin had opened discussions about a foreign trip in 2011, with Israel and Great Britain at the top of the list of potential destinations. Details of the overseas venture, including the dates and locations, however, were never finalized.
Palin considered attending the Herzliya Conference, a highly regarded national security and policy gathering outside Tel Aviv. This year’s conference began Sunday, and a spokesman for the event said that Palin was invited to attend but did not accept the offer.
“She was invited; the president was invited. All of the top people in the U.S. were invited,” the spokesman said. “But it’s not as if her attendance was imminent or expected.”
All the TOP people? My GOD, so Sarah Palin is considered one of the US top people on national security and policy gathering?
The 2008 FAILED GOP vice presidential nominee’s visit to Israel would have helped burnish her foreign policy credentials ahead of a possible run for president in 2012.
HUH? This trip, when the world knows she does not have appropriate experience would burnish her foreign policy credentials?
