Palin cancels planned trip to Sudan
wapo ^ | 06/22/11 | amy gardner

Posted on 06/22/2011 1:57:49 PM PDT by winoneforthegipper

Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has canceled a planned trip next month to war-ravaged Sudan, one of the most unstable nations in the world and the focus of passionate advocacy within the U.S. evangelical community.

Palin scrapped her plans to visit the North African country for scheduling reasons, several sources close to Palin said. She was planning to travel with Franklin Graham, the son of evangelical leader Billy Graham, as well as Fox News personality Greta Van Susteren to the July 9 independence ceremony of South Sudan, the sources said.

Good idea, lots of serious downside and no upside.
Keep listening to the Israeli’s Sarah

Something seems to be going on. There are reports she cancelled her bus tour, now she is cancelling out the Sudan trip. It will be interesting to see what is going on.

Sudan is a great place to not go to right now. I'd expect Robert Young Pelton to go, but not many others. Some friends who are missionaries there (for years) just got evacuated.

My take is that between this and the early halt to the bus tour, she’s received some credible DEATH THREATS. What better place to try to take out an opponent than in a war torn area like Sudan.

Don’t forget “they” took out Larry McDonald over the Sea of Japan in ‘83. The 267 others were acceptable collateral damage.

Sudan is extremely dangerous. I’m sure she is guarded, but she would need a full presidential guard in a place like that.

I think she wanted to oblige her friend Franklin Graham, who invited her, but just couldn’t justify doing it.

If she went, she would never forget the experience. I traveled to the region in 2006. Roads were still mined so we had to fly everything in. If the mines don't get you, the heat could. If the heat doesn't get you, the crawling critters could. If you survive that, then the Army to the North just may take you. And on and on.

Despite the huge obstacles, the Christians in the South are as on fire for their Lord as any as I've ever seen. Makes me weep at my own faith and pettiness.

One week in Sudan changes people...for life.

Yes, it’s interesting for the reason she might commit to running but I’m kinda glad she’s not going just for her own sake, it’s not the safest place to be now.

I’m not convinced that Sarah Palin is ‘up to something’ with this cancellation. I believe it was partly a security issue for her. Sudan is a very dangerous place and if Palin had to take a horde of bodyguards for security plus the inevitable media herd that would follow her she may have figured that she would be more of a distraction than an asset to the groups purposes. I’m just not reading anything political into this - but I could be wrong.

Or to look at it from a more “Zen” perspective.
