U.S. scraps missile-defense test as target misfires

That makes me feel safe.

The United States scrapped on Friday a key test of an emerging missile-defense shield after a dummy missile that was to have been the system's target went astray over the Pacific.

That's what you get when you add the genius of our technology with the stupidity of our people.

"The target did not reach sufficient altitude to be deemed a threat, and so the ballistic missile defense system did not engage it, as designed," said Air Force Lt. Gen. Henry Obering, head of the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency.

Instead it defaulted to plan B and bombed a small village in Pakistan.
