Palin, Russia, and Alaskan Airspace

Jason Zengerle seems to have figured out what Sarah Palin was talking about when she said this:

It’s very important when you consider even national security issues with Russia as Putin rears his head and comes into the air space of the United States of America, where– where do they go? It’s Alaska.

That’s nonsense, but it seems to have been an attempt to refer to this incident from March:

Russia’s resurgent military is again making sporadic, unannounced bomber runs toward Alaska’s airspace, leading the Air Force to scramble jets to intercept and identify them, according to the commander of the Pacific Air Forces, Gen. Howie Chandler.

Now what insights into national security Palin gleaned from this is pretty hard to say. She doesn’t even seem to have learned how to describe the situation coherently.
