Puzzled by SDi classification

[mk1]To the Editor:

We read with interest the series of letters and articles concerning the Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). We must admit, however, that we are puzzled by the debate about the possible classification of SDI technology with the Soviet Union when it is completed. If this technology is to be shared with the Soviets, why bother to classify it in the first place? We think this talk of classification is the result of a misunderstanding of the high level policy. Surely the President knows what he's talking about.
