Smarter Missile Defense

Via Rachel Maddow

President Obama announced he would get rid of a Bush era missile defense plan and implement a new plan aimed at short and medium range missiles from Iran. Rachel Maddow talks about this more sensible plan with Joe Cirincione, President of the Ploughshares Fund.

President Bush was promoting a missile system that doesn't work against a threat that doesn't exist.

President Obama is replacing nothing, with something. He's actually going to be putting more hardware, on target quicker, in the next two years defending more countries in Europe than the Bush plan would have.
