If you want them to go straight, and really far, yes. You can't maneuver at those speeds without breaking apart any kind of aerodynamic body. You could maneuver slightly, and a hypersonic missile would be scary as hell against larger platforms, like tankers, or B-52s, but they'd have the same problem we had with the Phoenix. Against a small, maneuvering target, they'd have a harder time making kills.

A letter in the post, mehh...
I dont imagine that really mattered to anyone in your part of the world. What can they do, use harsh language or invade NZ?
Sounds more like someone in the US Air force should be getting their knuckles rapped for allowing such a security breach in the first place.
