Subject: Weapons
Source: National Journal
Date: 11-Aug


The National Journal investigates "how Sen. Bob Smith of New Hampshire has single-handedly pushed an anti-satellite weapon that the army really doesn't want." The story sheds light on the political battles surrounding "the KE-ASAT - short for kinetic energy anti-satellite weapon." The article reports "one of those Washington wars" with "all the essential elements: a crusading lawmaker, a futuristic Pentagon defense contract worth hundreds of millions of dollars, a grand jury investigation into possible misuse of government funds, inside informants, and, yes, even an accusation of sexual harassment."
