Missle defense shield conforms to 20 year old DOD security policies?

You should be REALLY scared that we’re supposedly the hottest thing since sliced bread when it comes to world powers and people are scared of us. Why should you be scared? Because all of these crazy weaponry such as the missle defense shield that costs on the order of $10 billion annually consistently fails their tests.
But that’s not all folks. Recently, the same people in charge of this so-called “defense shield” also let a bunch of group passwords to the system loose on a unencrypted network. Not only that, but they conform to 20 year old DoD security policies instead of current security policies. Seeing how we reported yesterday on a number of government agencies failing their cyber security exams for consecutive years (some of those include the ones in charge of this missle defense shield), we’re just wondering…
Shouldn’t we just rename this into “Hack Me to Fly a Missle Network?” It sure scares us that there isn’t a better measure of security guarding such weapons of death.

    In Gulf War I we learned that the Patriot Missile was useless but that didn’t seem to stop their production. So there is really no problem with security, because no other country wants worthless missiles that don’t hit what they’re aimed at. The good old USofA is the only one continuing to pay for them. How lucky we tax payers are to have such brilliant leaders!

  • Again, the point is missed. The matter that was spoke of isn’t the fact that the missle defense shield is useless. It’s the fact that the launch codes can pretty much be had by anyone. Which, whether or not the warhead is armed or not and where it falls matters not since it doesn’t have to fall far from the tree since it’s a “defensive” missle.
