CBS 60 Minutes reviews North Korean threat with visit to USAF center near Dayton, Ohio
David Martin reports on North Korea’s Nuclear Threat on CBS 60 Minutes on Oct. 29.
The report, for the first time ever, showed the innards of an Air Force command center near or at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, where North Korean missiles are studied and NORAD defense is simulated.
The upshot is that North Korea probably does not have a heat shield that can survive reentry on an ICBM capable of reaching the US, but is likely to have it by some time in 2018.
The broadcast showed some shorter range SCUD missiles capable of hitting South Korea or Japan.
