Rice, Polish counterpart sign missile defense deal
US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Polish Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski have signed a deal that will put an American missile defense base in Poland, a move that has angered a resurgent Russia.

 

The formal signing comes six days after the two countries agreed to a deal that will see 10 US interceptor missiles placed just 115 miles (180 kilometers) from Russia's westernmost frontier. (AP)
