(Newser) – Sarah Palin gave in to protests from reporters today and allowed them to observe meetings with world leaders at the United Nations, the AP reports; her staff had earlier said only photographers and a TV crew would be invited to sessions with Afghanistan's Hamid Karzai and Columbia's Alvaro Uribe. A campaign spokeswoman, after earlier saying the restrictions were not open to debate, called the incident “miscommunication.”
