View From The North - Palin's Foreign Policy Experience

The media has mocked the “Alaska proximinty to Russia” so called gaffe. I have a question for military personnel and Redstste readers.

When F-15’s are scambled from Elmendorf AFB to confront Russian bombers are those aircraft not Alaska Air National Guard and the Governor is the CINC of those forces. Would not Gov Palin then have sent forces to protect the US? Something Obama/Biden have never done. Seems relevant to me!

Please correct em if I am wrong
