Possible 2012 presidential contender Sarah Palin gaffed Wednesday in discussing this week's attack by the communist North on South Korea.

Palin appeared on Glenn Beck's radio show, where the host asked her how she would handle such a situation.

"This is stemming from, I think, a greater problem when we're all sitting around asking, 'Oh no, what are we going to do,' and we're not having a lot of faith that the White House is going to come out with a strong enough policy to sanction what it is that North Korea is going to do," Palin said, saying that the situation demonstrates what "scares" her in terms of the Obama administration's national security policy.


"Obviously, we gotta stand with our North Korean allies," Palin said.

Beck immediately corrected her. "And we're also bound by prudence to stand with our South Korean allies, yes," she responded.

"And to remind North Korea that we're not going to reward bad behavior and we're not going to walk away," Palin said.
