Sarah Palin isn’t backing down from her comments over the weekend at the National Rifle Associaion’s annual convention, where she had the following to say about suspected terrorists:
“Well, if I were in charge,” Palin said, with a long pause, “They would know that waterboarding is how we baptize terrorists.”
It’s a comment that stirred up a bit of controversy, but Palin told NBC News she has no regrets.
“Would I make it again? Why wouldn’t I, yeah, absolutely. Terrorists who want to annihilate Americans, innocent Americans, our children — whatever it takes to stop them. If I were in charge, I’d be stoppin’ em,” she said.
And Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) didn’t hesitate to seize the moment and remind everyone of one thing:
