Governor Palin, Hawaii Gov & 6 Senators: Øbama Undermining US Missile Defense Capabilities

Wednesday, June 17, 2009 0 Responses
HONOLULU - Governor Lingle is calling on Congress and Øbama to fully fund missile defense programs. During a local radio interview, Lingle was asked by a caller about proposed cutbacks in the programs.
Govenror Lingle said Tuesday that a president is obligated to protect the country & spending on missile defense systems should not be reduced. The U.S. plans to store 26 ground-based missile interceptors in Alaska, after decades of research and more than $100 billion spent. But Øbama & Defense Secretary Robert Gates want to halt deployment of 14 more interceptors.

Last Month, Connecticut Senator Joe Lieberman, Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski & Mark Begich were among 6 senators who signed a letter to Øbama opposing the missile defense cuts, writing that:
"major reduction could undermine our emerging missile defense capabilities to protect the US against a growing threat. As you know, the threat from ballistic missiles is significant & on the rise. N Korea's rocket launch, conducted in defiance of international warnings thus cuts leave the U.S. less capable of responding to missile threats. The fact remains that our adversaries continue to invest large sums in the development of these weapons. The question is whether we respond by developing appropriate defenses against them." 

Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman, who also signed the letter, said that it is a "really important program" since it gives the military the "unique capacity to hit a missile in boost phase before it even gets into its normal arc."

Governor Palin said in a statement:
“The United Nations sanctions have failed to stop N Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, & the Øbama cannot afford to be playing catch-up to an irrational dictator like Kim Jong-Il,” “Missile Defense Agency funding must be fully restored in the federal budget to guarantee our protective measures remain the best in the world. Fort Greely plays a crucial role in the nation’s security.”
