Rein of Error: Fact-Checking Palin's Tea Party Speech

Sarah Palin wowed the Tea Party Convention in Nashville Saturday night, but she did it by making claims that weren't quite true.

Her statements about the Obama Administration's national security policies turned out to be fiction, not fact. Indeed, Palin said what she wishes were true, not what actually is. In short, she lied. 

Naturally, the Tea Party crowd lapped it up. They weren't about to question the Gospel According to Sarah. 

Media Matters checked some specifics from Palin's speech. The gory details are here.
