Malcolm Wallop, RIP

Former Wyoming Senator Malcolm Wallop died yesterday at age 78. I’m a native of Wyoming and Senator Wallop was a hero of mine (I never met him).

Steven Hayward has a moving tribute to Senator Wallop’s greatness here.

The Senator  advocated a missile defense system in 1970’s, before Ronald Reagan was President.  Hayward calls him the father of Reagan’s strategic defense initiative.  According to Hayward Wallop mastered both the politics and the science of it. That’s easy to believe, he was a great and smart man.

Senator Wallop wrote several books and articles on the idiocy of unilateral nuclear disarmament, such as The Arms Control Delusion, with Angelo Codevilla.
