Commentary from the Mile High City

One last item about the Post. They've included a report of a report that raises technical questions about missile defense. Change a few words, and this article could have been, probably was, written 15 years ago when I was working on countermeasures. The reports questions boost-phase intercept and reiterates that technical problems haven't been solved, ignoring all the obvious and impressive progress we've made in 20 years. Fifteen years ago, remember, we'd never "hit a bullet with a bullet," but now we have, many times. These kinds of reports, Science By Press Conference, are almost always politically-driven, and almost always deeply flawed. Like Tom Daschle, they're just raising questions. The country would be better served if they helped provide some answers.
