Writing in The Corner, Mitt Romney unveils his lengthy response to the missile defense scuttle.
Its cornerstone is a bullet-pointed rebuttal to the Administration's rationales, surrounded by broader rhetoric.
President Obama has made a dangerous and alarming decision to shelve our missile-defense system in Europe.... His decision is wrong in every way, despite his rationale.
.... Iran is not cooperating with the IAEA.
It is rushing headlong towards nuclear capability — it may already have enough enriched uranium to build a bomb.
And it may well have secured access to missile technology from other nations. North Korea is, of course, much further along.
And Pakistan, a state threatened from within by jihadists, has extensive nuclear capabilities.
In such an environment, it is alarming and dangerous for the president to walk away from our missile-defense commitments.
