Obama To Hear Missile Defence Works

During the 22-month campaign, Obama touted that he would only use our resources on missiles and defences if it was proven to work. Today the head of the U.S. missile defense agency said he will tell Obama that it is indeed proven.

The story basically is, that most critiques are behind the times, thinking that technology is the same as it was in 2000, however “We’ve come a hell of a long way since 2000. So our primary objective will be to educate them on what we have accomplished.” said Lt. Gen. Trey Obering. The Lt. General also said that the new President should stand his ground when it comes to the planned missle shield in Europe that is pissing off the Russians. He said, “If we were to walk away from these deployments in Europe, it would severely hurt our ability to protect our deployed forces in that region and our allies in that region from what we see as an emerging threat,”.

So far, all we have heard from the Obama camp is that, “President Kaczynski raised missile defense, but President-elect Obama made no commitment on it. His position is as it was throughout the campaign: that he supports deploying a missile defense system when the technology is proved to be workable,” said Denis McDonough, Obama’s senior foreign policy adviser.
