On foreign policy, Palin and Biden disagreed over whether Iraq or Afghanistan was the “central front” in the US war against terrorism. Biden guaranteed that if there was another terrorist attack on US soil, it would come from Al Qaeda remnants on the border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. Palin pointed to comments from Al Qaeda’s leadership that Iraq was the key battlefront.
The two also disagreed sharply over when and how to pull troops out of Iraq.
“We will end this war. For John McCain there is no end in sight,” Biden said, arguing the need for a strict timetable. “Your plan is a white flag of surrender in Iraq,” Palin retorted, saying the president must listen to commanders on the ground. >>>>>
