THAAD test up­date

The Washington Times Weekly - - National Security -

An item that ap­peared in the March 19 col­umn in­cor­rectly re­ported the num­ber of mis­siles used in the test of the The­ater High Alti­tude Area De­fense (THAAD). Two THAAD in­ter­cep­tor mis­siles were fired at a sin­gle-tar­get bal­lis­tic mis­sile.

Af­ter the first in­ter­cep­tor hit the tar­get, range safety of­fi­cers de­stroyed the sec­ond in­ter­cep­tor, not the tar­get.

Bill Gertz cov­ers na­tional se­cu­rity af­fairs. He can be reached at 202/636-3274, or at in­sid­e­ther ing@wash­ing­ton­
