Official: Palin's never issued an order to Alaska Guard

McCain supporters cite Sarah Palin's role as commander of the Alaska National Guard as evidence of her experience, but since she became governor, the Guard has provided security for a marathon, rescued a woman from an island, and sent troops to assist in mudslides. Palin wasn't involved in those decisions. She has no authority over the Guard when it's deployed overseas.
