Congressman Mike Turner (OH-10), Chairman of the House Armed Services Subcommittee on Tactical Air and Land Forces took to the House Floor today to criticize the Administration’s failure to articulate a consistent missile defense strategy. The Obama Administration last month announced that it would be abandoning its failed Phased Adaptive Approach and place ground-based interceptors at missile silos in Alaska and California. Turner for years has been advocating for the placement of missiles in those silos to counter the threat of a missile attack on the homeland. Turner had offered an amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act which would have accomplished this. It was opposed by the Obama Administration and the Senate.
