Palin 'Blood Libel' Video Vanishes, and Then Returns

Updated 4:05 p.m.

Did Sarah Palin pull her video response to the shooting in Tucson following widespread outcry from Jewish groups and political observers?

No.

Though the video became temporarily unavailable on Vimeo midafternoon -- the version embedded here at The Atlantic stopped working and gave instead the warning, "The creator of this video has not given you permission to embed it on this domain. This is a Vimeo Plus feature" -- it turned out to just be a tech glitch on the user end.

Team Palin has not removed her video. Not at all.

But someone did tweak the controls, perhaps accidentally.

"The temporary disabling of the Sara Palin video was done by the video creator. Vimeo did not experience any glitches, nor did we alter the video in any way," said Deborah Szajngarten, a spokesperson for Vimeo.
