It seems to be official---N. Korea can reach our west coast with its missiles.Too bad Daschle can't sweep his 2001 anti-NMD press conference under the carpet. It was obvious from his delivery that Daschle's intent was to portray pro-NMD folks as idiots. At the end, he reveals himself to be the half-wit.
Transcript from Daschle's press conference, in 2001, on the National Missile Defense Program
Whether or not we want to violate the ABM treaty
especially with a concept [NMD program] that we may not know
that we do know now does not work
is something that also mystifies me.
Every aspect of the debate and the consideration
that is given this whole program
is... is troubling to me.
I... I mean... I...there's a disconnect there.
I mean...It just seems common sense....
I mean...there's no brain..
This isn't rocket science here...
Yes it IS rocket science....
that's the problem..
Hadn't thought about that..
As I just think out loud ....

(laugh laugh laugh laugh laugh)
That's the problem.
