Sure it is. I think they say it's a low chance system.

If the $40B since 2002 is accurate, I'd like to point out while that's a lot of money to you and me, it's not that much in terms of defense spending. That's a little over $2.5B per year.

Article released today, Feb. 2:

US ballistic missile defense just doesn't work — but we keep spending billions and billions on it



Laura Grego and David Wright, leading experts in the field of ballistic missiles, writing for the Union of Concerned Scientists, found that the so-called intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) the GMD knocked down was flown on a favorable trajectory, slower than the real thing, and without any of the tricks or savvy North Korea might use in an actual attack. The paper concludes the US has no reliable ballistic missile defense capability for the homeland.
