US Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel speaks on March 15, 2013, inside the media briefing room of the Pentagon, in Washingon, DC. The United States is to bolster its defenses against a possible North Korean missile strike by siting 14 more interceptors in Alaska, Hagel announced Friday. The new batteries will boost by almost half the 30 interceptors already deployed along the California and Alaska coastline and should be in place by 2017, as Pyongyang races to develop a nuclear-armed ballistic threat.
