Former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin blasted President Obama’s Wednesday night speech on his strategy to combat the Islamic State by jokingly apologizing for costing Sen. John McCain the election.

“As I watched the speech last night, Sean, the thought going through my mind was, I owe America a global apology because John McCain through all of this, John McCain should be our president,” Ms. Palin told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night.

She said Mr. McCain was correct about the war on terror in 2008 and the need to leave an American combat force in Iraq to prevent the resurgence of the kind of threat that is now posed by the Islamic State.

Ms. Palin also condemned Secretary of State John Kerry for saying America is not at war with the Islamic State.

Well, dear Lord, these boys are so arrogant and that’s getting in the way of sound policy that will keep America secure and our allies. Hear John Kerry saying we’re not at war with ISIS. Well, John, ISIS is at war with us,” she said.
