The Boeing YAL-1 may have been designated as such in 2004 but its tech was dated from the early 1980s. That has relevance for 911 [see last evening’s post].
The YAL-1 also has relevance in shooting down Fat Boy’s missiles:
Once again four North Korean missiles have “failed” in a row as the U.S. and South Korea conduct joint exercises this week. The first volley of missiles to “fail” included 3 intermediate range missiles with one blowing up just miles above the launch pad. The others blowing up consecutively minutes apart in the boost phase of the launch window. This once again fits the profile of an airborne laser system attack.
I’d say that also has relevance to the Boston brakes of Diana’s car.
