WASHINGTON—The head of the U.S. Missile Defense Agency says that the Obama administration has discussed declassifying key data on U.S. missile defense in order to provide it to Russia.

The administration has been exploring how to ease Russian concerns that the U.S. missile defense shield is aimed at countering Russia's nuclear arsenal.

Arms control advocates have suggested that revealing missile interceptor capabilities could provide a breakthrough on an issue that Russia says stands in the way of nuclear arms reductions. But doing so would provoke charges by Republicans that the administration is compromising national security to appease Moscow.

Under questioning at a hearing on Wednesday, Missile Defense Agency director Vice Adm. James Syring said that he has discussed declassifying data, including the speed of interceptors, with senior Defense Department officials.

Missile defense has long been a contentious issue between the United States and Russia. The U.S. has said that its capabilities are aimed at countering threats from Iran and North Korea. It says that its interceptors would not pose a threat to Russia's huge nuclear arsenal.

Obama has twice altered U.S. missile defense plans in Europe that Russia had stridently opposed. He has said the decisions were about better addressing threats. But Republicans have charged that they were aimed at soothing Russian objections.

This is called treason. And some of you voted for it and applaud it.

This nation destroyed the USSR, they should have been stripped of the nukes and placed under occupation.

Putin is a leader with guts, far more than the wimp we have.

Putin has more muscles than Barry. Also, Putin likes to model for photographs. Barry is just bound and determined to destroy us and we have too many stupid people in this country that are just like him and have enabled our demise!

If Patton had been listened to at the end of WW 2,

we would not be having a problem with the Ruskies.

If he had been allowed to do the right thing in 1950, we would have been spared 60 years of Asian insanity.

MacArthur was responsible for the organizational collapse of the Army forces in Korea before Incheon. He failed to maintain standards in Japan.

He overextended his supply lines nearing the Yalu.

A general without his ego would not have made the same mistake.

Though at the time we would have been able to beat the Chinese in nuclear combat, it would have lowered the threshold.

We were the only nation on the planet with deployable and deliverable atomic weapons at the time. We should have used them on military targets and laid down the law.

Truman died December 26, 1972.

He's already answered.

If, that is, there is someone to answer to.
