The latest in ballistic missile defense

From over at myway.com:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The first flight test in nearly two years of a planned U.S. missile-defense shield has been scrapped two days in a row this week because of bad weather, the Pentagon said on Friday.

Strong rain squalls over the Kwajalein atoll launch site in the central Pacific caused the latest postponement, Richard Lehner, a spokesman for the Pentagon's Missile Defense Agency, said shortly after the decision to scrap the test. A new attempt might be made later in the day, he said.
So, apparently, if the swarthy, dark-skinned evildoers want to attack, they're going to wait until it rains. Those tricky, tricky bastards.

UPDATE, Dec. 15: Oops.
