"Still, many experts and critics of the missile defense system think the confidence is misplaced. "It is completely unwarranted, and it is a wild speculation based on assumptions that are almost certainly untrue," said Theodore Postol, an MIT professor who has studied the system."

Postol? Where did the Tribune dig up this negative turnip. Professor of what at MIT? He studied the system, he did not develop it nor was he in the loop of the project.


If it was Obama instead of Reagan who pushed for the missile defense system the project would have been hailed as the greatest achievement of mankind.

Hitler, Herihito and Stalin would have loved to have had a pricq like Postol working on the Manhattan project during WWII. With his attitude the atomic bomb would never have been developed by the U.S. first. Instead Germany would have beat us to it and used it on England and the U.S. Stalin would have followed up.

Well, thank goodness President Bush pressed hard for continued funding and testing of the missile defense system (and just in time for the current NK mess). He obviously foresaw the possibility that we would eventually get a weak president that our enemies would not fear. But I'm not sure he thought it would happen so soon.
