Missile Defense: A Continuing National Priority

A rash of recent news articles condemn the Bush Administration for its emphasis on missile defense prior to the September 11th terrorist attacks and attempt to build a case for reversing the deployment of a missile defense later this year. Undoubtedly, the war on terrorism is now the highest national priority, but our nation faces many threats and we would be wrong to ignore or underestimate the others in our focus on the problems we confront today. The American public must not lose sight of the current and future threat posed by ballistic missiles.
