NY Times:

Pentagon Says It’s Confident Missile Hit Satellite Tank.  Okay, so I was wrong yesterday.  They’ve shown video.  My sincere apologies to the Pentagon.  I remain skeptical over the need for missile shootdown; I’m not buying the hydrazine fuel excuse. We’ve had two Shuttles disintegrate, countless other rockets explode in the atmosphere - all of which contained hydrazine - without a single similar concern.  I’ll wager in years after we’ll hear about nuclear fuel, experimental armaments, or very classified equipment.

Related: Times Opinionator has a different take.  The shootdown legitimizes missile defense in significant ways.
