Headline SHOULD read: U.S. may DELAY Israel missile shield fundsIsrael's increasingly troubled missile defense shield has taken another knock with media reports that budgetary problems could force the U.S. administration to delay funding for the system still being developed by Israel's defense industry.
The aid could be put back several months, the liberal Haaretz daily reports.
My bet is that any DELAY will be mitigated to that which is acceptable to the Israelis.
