Palin's National Security Credentials

An email forwarded to me by my Friend-on-the-Hill,
Subject: Important info re: Palin's Nat. Secur. Cred

Just picked up some little known info on Palin's
National Security Credentials. Some have shrugged off her position as Commander of the Alaskan National Guard but see 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.

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."
