Yeah, boy....that's some ringing endorsement alright. Both guys gave great big - "ummm. maybe...but not really," concluding remarks.
Boston University history professor Brendan McConville said, “Basically when Paul Revere was stopped by the British, he did say to them, ‘Look, there is a mobilization going on that you’ll be confronting,’ and the British are aware as they’re marching down the countryside, they hear church bells ringing — she was right about that — and warning shots being fired. That’s accurate.”
Patrick Leehey of the Paul Revere House said Revere was probably bluffing his British captors, but reluctantly conceded that it could be construed as Revere warning the British.
“I suppose you could say that,” Leehey said. “But I don’t know if that’s really what Mrs. Palin was referring to.”
McConville said he also is not convinced that Palin’s remarks reflect scholarship.
“I would call her lucky in her comments,” McConville said.
Once again, telling your captors at gunpoint that people are ready for them does not mean your mission was to "warn the British," it constitutes cracking under pressure at the very least and treason at the most.
Unless you consider that part of Khalid Sheikh Mohammed's "mission" was to warn Americans of Bin Laden's couriers and locations.
In which case, waterboarding him was totally unnecessary since it was part of his master plan to give up names and locations without it.

Yeah, I don't blame you. If I was a liberal (and thank the Good Lord I am not) I'd be doing everything I could to distract from the mess Obama is making - and making worse day by day.
So I totally understand why you're starting threads about the former governor of Alaska. I wouldn't want to talk about the economy, gas prices, foreign affairs, unemployment, or anything significant either.
Here's a time where we agree. It's not so much about Palin as it is about the distraction from important problems that drives me nuts. It's like Weiner's weener, the royal wedding, and Casey Anthony. PLEASE SANTA, MAKE IT STOP!
Tell it to the History prof at Brown who said she was right andf the loons are wrong. Link was already provided to the article quoting him in another thread.
Yes, and in the other thread it was clear that you were wrong, too.
I'd gladly enter into the discussion with the Brown prof were he or she on this board. Are you intimidated by a university professor, or think they are infallible? LOL
otoh, you are on this board, and you just keep insisting she is right when it is clear as day that she was not. No surprise, you just parrot whatever headlines suit your opinion, without actually thinking it through.
Well, we all know how impressed he is at Obama's Magna-cum-laude degree from Harvard.
Guess everything Obama says is infallible, too.
I believe he also taught Constitutional Law at Harvard.
So obviously, his views on all things constitutional trump yours.
In all seriousness, 13, give it up.
He didn't "ride around and ring them bells and fire them warning shots to warn the British."
He warned the colonists. He got captured and bragged/babbled/whatever that "yeah well our guys will just shoot your guys hah."
That wasn't his mission, DUH. I mean, HUGE DUH. Bragging was not Paul Revere's mission, or the mission of the many other riders who were also out warning the actual colonial leadership and average joes.
