Did Sarah Palin really say that?

Sarah Palin.

"Are we at war? I haven't heard the president say that we are at war. And that's why I too [don't know], do we use the term intervention, do we use war, do we use squirmish?"—in an interview with Fox News' Greta Van Susteren, March 29, 2011 *

Correction, April 6, 2011: Because of an editing error, this Palinism incorrectly quoted Sarah Palin. She said "squirmish," not "skirmish."
