After being snubbed for ground-based missile defenses, Poland says it is ready to cooperate in a revised shield proposed by the Obama administration. "I want to stress that Poland views ... the new configuration for the missile shield as very interesting, necessary, and we are ready at the appropriate scale to participate," Prime Minister Donald Tusk told reporters. Vice President Joe Biden, opening a three-stop mission to reassure allies in Eastern Europe, thanked Poland for its support. "Simply put, our missile plan is better security for NATO and is better security for Poland," he said.
