MISSILE DEFENSE UPDATE....Another test of missile defense, another failure. Ho hum. But I liked this part:

[The Missile Defense Agency] said the ground-based interceptor "experienced an anomaly shortly before it was to be launched" from the Ronald Reagan Test Site at Kwajalein Atoll in the central Pacific Ocean 16 minutes after the target missile left Alaska.

How appropriate for a missile defense "anomaly" to happen at the Ronald Reagan Test Site. Maybe there is a God after all.

And for the record, they've already had several failures this month. In fact, this was the first time they were even able to conduct the test at all. Too bad the interceptor failed to launch, let alone shoot anything down.
