We don't have a missile defense that can handle threats from Iran. So warn former CIA Director James Woolsey and Rebeccah Heinrichs. The Bush Administration was building one, but Obama scrapped it, replacing it with one that "offers no added protection for the U.S. until 2020. That's almost certainly too little too late." Moreover, might the new Obama strategic arms agreement with Russia limit our sovereign right of self-defense?
Rebeccah Ramey Heinrichs is a former Ashbrook Scholar. A former manager of the House Bipartisan Missile Defense Caucus, she is now an adjunct fellow of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies. (She is also officially a DC beautiful person, a status she indeed holds by nature.)
