U.S. missile defense could destroy North Korean ICBMs: Boeing CEO

GMD missile defense system's record is patchy, however, with tests done under ideal conditions

The CEO of Boeing's Defense, Space and Security division on Wednesday said the U.S. was already able to defend against intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) attacks from North Korea, using the company's Ground-based Midcourse Defense (GMD) system.

Leanne Caret answered unequivocally "yes" when asked by CNBC if the GMD system could defend the United States from North Korean attacks.
