The National Security Agency, the electronic spy and code-breaking service whose name frequently is mentioned with the words "super-secret," recently declassified details of its history.
The Pentagon is deploying a ballistic missile defense system to Guam in coming weeks to strengthen its posture in the Pacific against a North Korean missile threat.
Asked how details of the DN-2 test were classified as secret intelligence matters one day and a matter for public comment the next, Col. Wilkinson said: "The day you asked me the question, the answer was no comment on intel matters. That changed the next day, and Lt. Col. Matoush responded to the new query at that time."
The move is "precautionary," Lt. Col. Wilkinson said. "The United States continues to urge the North Korean leadership to cease provocative threats and choose the path of peace by complying with its international obligations. The United States remains vigilant in the face of North Korean provocations and stands ready to defend U.S. territory, our allies, and our national interests."
