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.
