READ: Palin Apologizes to Assange for Comparing Him to a Terrorist
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote a Facebook post Tuesday apologizing to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange for previously comparing him to al Qaeda terrorists.
"To Julian Assange: I apologize," Palin wrote while urging readers to watch Sean Hannity's interview with the Wikileaks founder.
In 2010, Palin shared a Facebook post condemning Assange for publishing U.S. diplomatic cables.
"Assange is not a 'journalist,' any more than the 'editor' of al Qaeda's new English-language magazine Inspire is a 'journalist.' He is an anti-American operative with blood on his hands."
"I apologize for condemning Assange when he published my infamous (and proven noncontroversial, relatively boring) emails years ago," Palin wrote Tuesday.
WikiLeaks published Palin's private emails during her VP run in 2008.
She wrote Tuesday that Assange's release of emails from the DNC and John Podesta opened the eyes of Americans.
Exposing the truth re: the Left having been oh-so-guilty of atrocious actions and attitudes of which they've falsely accused others. The media collusion that hid what many on the Left have been supporting is shocking. This important information that finally opened people's eyes to democrat candidates and operatives would not have been exposed were it not for Julian Assange.
