Missile Defense Test Rigged
I'm completely flabbergasted I haven't heard this already: the July 14 National Missle Defense Test was rigged! Turns out the missle has a GPS transmitter on board to broadcast its position to the "kill vehicle". Gee, I hope those mean old countries that are (apparently) going to launching missiles at us like crazy are so kind!

Here's the original Congressional briefing on the test, as well as a briefing given which goes into some more detail.

MIT Technology Review last year had a long article about why missile defense won't work, unless the first stage of the missile is attacked seconds after it is launched - from a warship off the coast of North Korea, for example.
