Good old Charlie Gibson has inadvertently done a great public service. From the transcript of his interview with Sarah Palin:
GIBSON: And under the NATO treaty, wouldn’t we then have to go to war if Russia went into Georgia?
PALIN: Perhaps so. I mean, that is the agreement when you are a NATO ally, is if another country is attacked, you’re going to be expected to be called upon and help.
Wow. Maybe we shouldn’t get too far ahead of ourselves.
