In the wake of a missile launch today by North Korea, Sen. Dan Sullivan appeared on CNN with Wolf Blitzer in an interview about the current threat, saying that “Effective diplomacy needs to be backed up by credible military options,” when it comes to dealing with the aggressions of Kim Jong Un.
“The intelligence community has been saying it’s no long a matter of if, but when. They are getting closer, but we are not just waiting for this to happen here on Capitol Hill or with this Administration,” he said, and then described the defense authorization bill that will bring a more robust missile defense to Alaska. Sullivan authored that portion of the bill.
