Second Test Of Costly US Missile-Defense System Fails

So much for being “97%” accurate…

Second Test Of Costly US Missile-Defense System Fails:

In a report that raises further questions about the US’s ability to respond to a ballistic missile attack from North Korea or one of its other adversaries, CNN said the US conducted an unsuccessful missile defense test on Wednesday.

The missile, which was launched from land in Hawaii, failed to intercept an incoming target. The Pentagon is not publicly acknowledging the failure of what’s supposed to be a crucial missile defense system. CNN’s anonymous sources blamed the Pentagon’s reticence on the upcoming Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, which are slated to begin Feb. 9.

US Department of Defense officials are trying to determine what went wrong, but so far, all the Pentagon will officially say is that a test took place.
