Palin will visit the Army base in early December.

WASHINGTON (CNN) – Sarah Palin will travel to the Fort Hood Army post in early December as part of her national book tour, Palin's publisher confirmed to CNN Friday.

The December 4 visit will come roughly one month after a mass shooting on the base that left 13 people dead and 38 wounded.

The stop, which had not been previously announced, is scheduled for the same day Palin signs books at a store in in the Dallas area.

The former Alaska governor is also making an appearance at Fort Bragg in North Carolina during her tour.

The visit was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

    Please remind me....who is this woman again? The one who called our president socialist, pals around with terrorists and etc.? And please tell me why we should care what she does and where she goes? Why she is always the main title of your political ticker, CNN?

    I hope to God she doesn't start one of her rants..I wouldn't let this woman within 1 mile of the base..I wouldn't trust her as far as I could throw her..Why can't she leave well enuff alone. Let her go talk to Bush instead of visiting the base. What is the military thinking, she will probably bring her tea bag friends with her..

    A few dead soldiers – an opportunity to be exploited for personal profit. What a good Republican!

    Good. Palin is a true patriot.

    Mr. Obama's Marxist buddies were outraged (outraged I tell ya) that some people accused him of making a photo op out of his trip to Dover. Problem is he took photographers with him and even had his salute filmed.

    Palin, or a person of her persuasion, will replace Obama on 01/20/13, if Mr. Obama doesn't attempt a coup before then.

    I will bet you liberal bed wetters she does not give a shout out to her peeps like nobama did after the shootings. Nobama does not give a rats butt about the troops, all he wants is to put on a show.

    CNN failed to include that the Ft. Hood officials insisted that Sarah Palin still visit.

    What the hell gives her the right to speak at a military base. These soldiers have been through enough without having to be a part of the Sarah Palin book tour. Shameful

    Photo op Photo op, she nevers misses a chance to get her face on the tube...a statement that Palin has "class" I beg your pardon, she is the most unclassy person I have ever seen. If she had any class she wouldn't even think of going there...What is her motivation??? cameras will be all over her, there is your motivation...

    So the Alaskan Air Head wants to stick her bony fingers in yet another place where they don't belong. What a low life piece of garbage.

    Palin even had time to visit wounded troops in Germany, unlike Obama who decided that working out at his hotel was more important.

    This is a pathetic ploy to ACT as though she cares so deeply for our fighting men and women.

    She CARES about money, and power as she sets herself up to run for president. A revolting prospect, indeed.

    The 30 year veteran speaks for veterans all over
    America.
    Palin would make one hell of a commander in
    chief.
    I don't see her checking the political wind gauge
    before kicking some enemy butt !!!

    Sniffit...are you a complete retard?
    The National Security Agency was intercepting telegrams and phone calls between Hasan and one of the leading advocates of jihad against Americans in the world. We know that they were turned over to the FBI. We know that the FBI concluded not to pursue it.
    This was all during the past year.....you do know who our President has been during that time right???

    Why is this woman allowed to visit of military facilities when she's a civilian as well as myself. This is opening a can of worms which could cause future discrimination charges against other civilians being denied entry to military facilities.
