Pentagon Defends Weapons After Report of Hacker Attacks

The Pentagon vouched for the capabilities of U.S. weaponry, responding to a report that Chinese hackers had gained access to sensitive information about major American weapons systems.

“We maintain full confidence in our weapons platforms,” Pentagon spokesman George Little said yesterday in a statement. “Suggestions that cyber intrusions have somehow led to the erosion of our capabilities or technological edge are incorrect.”
