Pentagon, Army Say East Coast Missile Defense Site Not Needed

The Pentagon and Army officials who head missile defense agencies told a Senate committee chairman that a missile interceptor site on the U.S. East Coast isn’t needed to improve U.S. defenses against Iranian missiles.

“There is no validated military requirement to deploy an East Coast missile-defense site,” Vice Admiral James Syring, head of the Missile Defense Agency, and his Army counterpart, Lieutenant General Richard Formica, wrote Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Carl Levin of Michigan.

The U.S. has sites in Alaska and California. House lawmakers have pushed for an East Coast site, saying it’s needed to defend against a potential attack by Iran. Senator Chuck Schumer, a New York Democrat, has urged that interceptors be located in his state.
