US Can Intercept North Korean Missiles, General Says

The head of the Pentagon’s missile defense agency on Wednesday said recent missile intercept tests give him confidence the U.S. can protect itself from wide variety of threats, including an intercontinental ballistic missile from North Korea. When asked directly about North Korea during the Space and Missile Defense Symposium in Huntsville, Alabama, Air Force Lt. Gen. Samuel Greaves said, “We believe that the currently deployed ballistic missile defense system can meet today’s threat.” Greaves’ comments came a day after The Washington Post reported North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear warhead to fit atop its ICBM, called the Hwasong 14, according to the U.S. Defense Intelligence Agency.
