Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists published a report from Ted Postol on how US Aegis-based missile defense systems in Eastern Europe do indeed violate the INF Treaty.

"The Western press has often treated the Russian claim that US missile defense installations have an offensive capability as rhetorical obfuscation. But publicly available information makes it clear that the US Aegis-based systems in Eastern Europe, if equipped with cruise missiles, would indeed violate the INF."
