Missile Defense Agency Statement

The proposed administrative investigation concerns allegations about the results of a 1997 missile defense flight test that were rejected in separate reviews conducted by the General Accounting Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the Department of Justice. The multiple reviews by independent government agencies of essentially the same issues coupled with the extreme sensitivity of the information at issue precluded granting MIT’s request to use classified information for an internal administrative investigation.
