Major milestone' reached in missile defense system

"It gives us the capability of dramatically expanding our testing ... and by porting it in Adak it also gives us an operational capability from a North Korean [missile] threat," Gen. Obering said in an interview.

Two significant items in this quote: North Korea is a threat, and partial capability is better than none. The article also states that "In addition to North Korean missiles, the radar could be used to detect Chinese missile launches." While it is not clear if this is a quote, it is great to know the threat is being acknowledged.

The Washington Times has this article which comes to us courtesy, of course, from The Center for Security Policy.
