The US Missile Defense system enthusiastically promoted by the outgoing Bush administration has long been met with criticism and doubt within the scientific community. In this episode Host Dr Caldicott talks with Dr Ted Postal, Professor of Science, Technology and National Security Policy in the Program in Science, Technology, and Society at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Dr Postal has defiantly uncovered numerous false claims about missile defenses, and in this interview he describes how the idea of a missile defense system fits in with US strategic nuclear policy, and how such a system is dangerously flawed.
