Two serious technical flaws have been identified in the ground-launched anti-missile interceptors that the United States would rely on to defend against a nuclear attack by North Korea.

Pentagon officials were informed of the problems as recently as last summer but decided to postpone corrective action. They told federal auditors that acting immediately to fix the defects would interfere with the production of new interceptors and slow a planned expansion of the nation’s homeland missile defense system, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office.

As a result, all 33 interceptors now deployed at Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County and Ft. Greely, Alaska, have one of the defects. Ten of those interceptors — plus eight being prepared for delivery this year — have both.

    I find amazing that it is perfectly acceptable for the NSA to spy on the American people and yet the government puts out national security information on a whim. I remember the saying that “loose lips sink ships”. What are these blabber mouths trying to sink, the country? Obama’s golf score is a national secret, but the location of our air defense systems and their readiness is common knowledge to even those that are not interested. Hell o a way to run a country!

      No, perfect way to run a country if you intend to destroy it, freedoms, and Capitalism.
