AF Space Command Restructured

Air Force headquarters is restructuring parts of its space program. Air Force Secretary Michael Donley says the changes will streamline space operations, and will apply to headquarters, but not field offices. The review involved over 70 key people and organizations, including the Air Force, the Department of Defense, Congress and other space related groups within government and the commercial sector. Among the changes, the Air Force undersecretary will take charge of the space program. Also, the job of space acquisition has been moved out of the undersecretary of the Air Force's office to the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition. The Secretary says the changes will allow Air Force to perform space work in a more streamlined and effective way, with the ultimate goal of providing the best space support to the warfighter.

Iran uranium is a "threat"

The former chief of U.N. nuclear inspections worldwide, told Le Monde newspaper that Iran has stockpiled enough low-enriched uranium for 1-2 nuclear weapons. But Olli Heinonen, said it would not make sense for it to "cross the bomb-making threshold with such a small amount". He also said Iran's uranium reserve still represented a "threat." Pentagon officials told Congress last spring Iran could produce enough highly enriched uranium for a one nuclear weapon in as little as a year.

Patriot Missiles to Kuwait

The Pentagon is going to sell about 200 Patriot missiles worth about $900 million to Kuwait. The goal is to build up anti-missile systems in the Persian Gulf. The Associated Press's Anne Flaherty writes, the initiative is aimed at defending Gulf allies against potential Iranian missile strikes and to signal to Tehran that any aggression would not go unanswered. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency announced Wednesday that it had notified Congress of the proposed sale. Congress could object but is not expected to do so.
