Palin pounces on State Department over Ahmadinejad birthday tweet

November 1, 2010

By Elise Viebeck -The Hill

When State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley tweeted a sardonic birthday wish to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday, he likely assumed it would be interpreted for the substance of its intent: a wish that for his birthday, Ahmadinejad would release imprisoned American hikers Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer.

According to her most recent tweets, however, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) didn’t catch the drift.

On Friday, she took to Twitter to blast the Obama administration for “kowtowing” and “coddling” enemies.
“Happy B’day Ahmadinejad wish sent by US Govt. Mind boggling foreign policy … Obama Doctrine is nonsense,” she tweeted,adding that the birthday greeting after Ahmadinejad’s “call 4 Israel’s destruction” speaks “volumes.”

Crowley’s original tweets had read:

Happy birthday President #Ahmadinejad. Celebrate by sending Josh Fattal and Shane Bauer home. What a gift that would be.

Your 54th year was full of lost opportunities. Hope in your 55th year you will open #Iran to a different relationship with the world.

So far, there’s been no response from him on Twitter.
