From my Alaskan Friend, Meg. Please read the message she forwarded to me below, in color. both the bold and the color have been added by me... my brother served in the Air Force with a majority of his time being in Alaska and Duluth, MN. He used to tell me how close that state is to Russia, as he used to watch the Russians snowmobiling (or whatever they had back then in mid-seventies...) while he was off duty.

God bless!

I notice that everyone in Washington dimisses AK, however if you look at a globe and notice where we are in the face of problems, Russia is and has been a problem.  When the volcano in the Phillipines blew in 1991 all three wings of the Airforce came to Elmendorf AFB and exploded Anchorage in a boom for many years.  They looked at moving to other bases, but ended up deciding on Alaska, since we are the "crossroads of the world".  Also we have North Korea and Vietnam and China and Japan not too far from us.   We are very important than most states.... Meg
P.S.  Barack can't figure out why we are so important.  I guess he is not getting briefed by the Government.....

Before you dismiss the fact that Sarah Palin is Commander of the Alaska National Guard consider this.

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. Her exposure to classified material may rival even Biden's and certainly by far exceeds Obama's.

She's also the commander in chief of the Alaska State Defense Force  (ASDF), a federally recognized militia incorporated into Homeland Security's counterterrorism plans. Palin is privy to military and intelligence secrets that are vital to the entire country's defense. Given Alaska 's proximity to Russia , she may have security clearances we don't even know about. According to the Washington Post, she first met with McCain in February, but nobody ever found out. This is a woman used to keeping secrets. She can be entrusted with our national security, because she already is.
