With America "at war," as President Bush says, every aspect of American Defense, but especially homeland defense, needs to be re-examined. But huge controversies remain. In the horrible new era of suicide-bomber airlines, does missile defense make sense? Or do we need to get ready for the next escalation? Can the Bush Administration proceed with its ambitious agenda for national missile defense if the Russians oppose it? And the Chinese? And the Europeans? Is there any way out of this thicket of questions?
