Missile Defense Under Analysts’ Radar
John Isaacs discusses the shortfalls of the Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) anti-ballistic missile system in an interview with WAFF-TV, a Huntsville, Alabama station.
Huntsville is home to NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center and the United States Army Aviation and Missile Command.
Of the GMD, Isaacs says, “Despite many many billions of dollars spent on the program, it’s still not a successful program…The real problem with missile defense is, it is rocket science, it’s not easy. Shorter range systems have been made to work, but it’s a very complex effort to intercept an incoming missile.”
