"By Taylor Dinerman - Democratic leaders are poised to gut America's missile defense - at the same time North Korea and Iran are testing long-range missiles that can strike the U.S. and its allies, including Israel, Japan and Britain. Meanwhile, sources inside the missile-defense community tell Pajamas Media that the Bush administration is planning to ask Congress to begin funding development of an "orbital battle station."
Editor's note: Oh great. If this is true (please count me among the skeptics) then space exploration detractors in Congress and elsewhere will soon be lumping all of George Bush's space ideas together as "Star Wars" and the VSE is going to be the loser. This won't make getting to the Moon any easier.
