"Militarily, where is our commander in chief?" former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin asked a Faith & Freedom Coalition audience in Washington on Saturday.

The outspoken Republican slammed President Obama for authorizing to send weapons to Syria's rebels for the first time on Thursday after learning Syrian President Bashar Assad had used chemical weapons against opposition forces.

"We're talking now more new interventions," Mrs. Palin said, according to The Blaze. "I say, until we know what we're doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he's doing, well, chief, in these radical Islamic countries who aren't even respecting basic human rights, where both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line, 'Allah Akbar,' I say until we have someone who knows what they're doing, I say, let Allah sort it out."

Mrs. Palin made headlines on Thursday after Fox News announced she would be rejoining the network as a frequent contributor.
