Faulty missiles come under fire
Re “Problems found in anti-missile system,” May 30
Even when it is known that existing ground-launched anti-missile interceptors have serious defects rendering them highly unreliable, it is apparently more important for the Defense Department to meet politically expedient deadlines than to get the job done correctly. And that includes building even more defective missiles.
Our strategy seems to be that the enemy’s military and political apparatus is more messed up than ours. Very reassuring.
