Hagel: North Korea’s Missiles Can’t Reach US


hagelDon’t worry. Take a chill pill.

That’s what Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is telling Americans. Hagel avers that neither Iran nor North Korea is capable of attacking the United States with a missile armed with a nuclear warhead. North Korea has said it is working on such a capability and has threatened to use it. American missile defenses are stationed in the Pacific in anticipation of a possible North Korean missile launch in coming days.

Hagel was answering a question at a House Armed Services Committee hearing today. Hagel commented that while he does not believe North Korea or Iran has a long-range missile that can hit the U.S. with a weapon of mass destruction, he did not rule out the possibility that either country could eventually get such capability.
