Former Alaska governor and 2008 US vice-presidential candidate on Saturday criticized the Obama administration's decision to arm the Syrian opposition, stating that the US should "let Allah sort it out" until the White House has a leader that "knows what its doing."

Speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition Conference, Sarah Palin asked: "Military, where is our commander in chief? We're talking now more new interventions?"

Adding her two-cents, Palin said that "until we know what we’re doing, until we have a commander in chief who knows what he’s doing, well, let 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."

Labeling Washington DC "one hot mess," Palin's tyrade was met with laughter and a round of applause.

US President Barack Obama decided to directly arm the rebels "to strengthen their effectiveness," the White House said. The new aid will be "military" in nature, but was not detailed.
