US missile defense chief doesn’t believe we are ahead of the North Korea missile threat

Vice Adm. James Syring, head of the US’s Missile Defense Agency, told the House Armed Services committee on Wednesday that the US “must assume that North Korea can reach us with a ballistic missile.”

“I would not say we are comfortably ahead of the threat,” said Syring, acknowledging the surprising strides that North Korea has made in developing the range of their missile forces.

“The advancements in the last six months have caused great concern to me and others in the advancement of and demonstration of technology of ballistic missiles from North Korea,” said Syring.
