The Air Force general in charge of U.S. missile defense expressed confidence Wednesday in the ground-based interceptor missile defense system, despite its three successive test failures.
The commander of the U.S. nuclear arsenal told lawmakers that the big across-the-board cuts to military spending mean that his forces might not be able to defend the United States in six months' time.
The commander of U.S. strategic nuclear forces told a Senate hearing this week that defense budget cuts are undermining the urgently needed modernization of strategic nuclear forces through delays in planned upgrades.
U.S. strategic nuclear forces are old, in dire need of modernization and face "draconian" cuts because of the federal budget crisis, the commander of U.S. nuclear forces said Tuesday.
As Gen. Kehler mentioned in his congressional testimony of Oct. 29, the B83 is not certified for all of the bombers and fighters required.
Gen. Kehler said that additional testing of the system is a "priority call within the resources that are available for missile defense."
