The Pentagon said an interceptor missile did not take off and was automatically shut down on its launch pad in the central Pacific. A target missile carrying a mock warhead had been fired 16 minutes earlier from Kodiak Island in Alaska.
The Pentagon is spending $10bn a year on the missile system.(how fucking much?) The test had already been delayed by bad weather. (or leaves on the track as us Brits like to use as an excuse for piss poor performance)
