Palin on Nidal Hasan: 'Profile Away'

She's an advocate for mothers, Christians, Alaskans, and—racial profiling? In a conversation with The Weekly Standard's Matthew Continetti, Sarah Palin says the government missed "clear, obvious massive warning signs" prior to Nidal Hasan's Fort Hood massacre. Political correctness "could be our downfall," she says, claiming it "prevented—I'm going to say it—profiling. I say, profile away." Continetti, the author of The Persecution of Sarah Palin, asked the former governor of Alaska whether 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed deserves constitutional rights. "Not no, but hell no," she replied, arguing that the decision to try Mohammed in a New York court is "an atrocious decision" that "makes a mockery of our judicial system."
