Obama seeks space weapons ban

I'll wait for all the details, but at first glance, this seems recklessly naive. It has implications for missile defense and satellite defense, among other things, and would effectively amount to unilateral disarmament on the part of the U.S., since the technology of our "strategic competitors" in those areas is years behind our own. If President Obama is seeking to reassure America's friends and foes that U.S. defense policy will remain strong under his administration, this is not a good signal.
