Homeland Security: Defending US Air Space

North Korea's testing of its own intercontinental ballistic missile last week reminded us that threats posed from the air are not limited to hijacked airliners. More importantly, it has reminded Congress that it needs to be equally aware of the threat posed by guided missiles in the hands of an emotionally unstable head of state .
