Palin Entrusted with Nation's Security

To tell you the truth, this hadn't dawned on me either.

Trubador brings it to our attention via his post.

Thanks Trub.

Alaska & National Security

Black Five has a nice little "I did not know that" post about the vital role Alaska and it's governor play in our country's national security: (Black Five)

Alaska is the first line of defense in our missile interceptor defense system. The 49th Missile Defense Battalion of the Alaska National Guard is the unit that protects the entire nation from ballistic missile attacks. It’s on permanent active duty, unlike other Guard units.

As governor of Alaska, Palin is briefed on highly classified military issues, homeland security, and counterterrorism.
