Palin Explains Foreign Policy Credentials to Couric

In part two of Katie Couric’s CBS interview with Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R), Palin explains her claim that Alaska’s proximity to Russia enhances her foreign policy credentials.

Palin said Alaska engages in “trade missions” with Russia, and that Alaska’s geography makes it critical to U.S. national security.

“As Putin rears his head and comes into the airspace of the United States of America, where do they go? It’s Alaska, it’s just right over the border,” Palin said. “It is from Alaska that we send those out to make sure that an eye is being kept on this very powerful nation, Russia, because they are right there, they are right next to our state.”
