The article discusses the report "Independent Working Group on Missile Defense, the Space Relationship and the Twenty-First Century." The report was published by the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis and sponsors include the Heritage Foundation, High Frontier and the George C. Marshall Institute. It focuses on the call to arms for supporters of space-based interceptors that recommend how to pass a political message for others to know the cause. The authors stress out that political reasons contributed to the fact that the U.S. does not have a working missile defense network in more than two decades.
