Missile Defense in Europe: The Way Forward

Recorded on December 3, 2008

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium

The Iranian ballistic missile and nuclear threat continues to grow, unhindered by the efforts of the international community.  Some have speculated that Iran will have the wherewithal for at least one nuclear weapon in the near term.  Reports of the successful test of a multi-stage ballistic missile with a solid rocket motor are also not encouraging. Adding to these concerns are questions about the Obama administration's commitment to missile defense in Europe, a system designed to blunt the Iranian missile and nuclear threat.  Please join us for a discussion of these issues and other matters regarding the future of missile defense in Europe.
