Obama Blamed For Failed Missile Tests
Obama cares nothing for national defense.
Check it out:
Four high-ranking Republican lawmakers criticized the Obama administration on Friday for three failed tests of the country’s missile-defense system, saying budget cuts and neglect are to blame.
Sens. James Inhofe, R-Okla., and Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., along with Reps. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., and Mike Rogers, R-Ala., sent Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel a letter faulting President Obama for allegedly gambling with national security by cutting funding to the program. They claim this hampered the ability to conduct vital tests needed to make sure the “ground-based midcourse defense system” (GMD) worked properly and conduct regular maintenance.
The last successful GMD intercept test was in 2008. Since then, there have only been three attempted intercept tests and two flight tests — the most recent of which was in January, and was successful. All of the intercept tests, however, tanked. The latest failed test was last Friday.
