This morning, Tuesday, May 6, 2008, Bulletin Publisher and Executive Director Kennette Benedict appeared on NBC's TODAY Show in a report about the U.S. nuclear arsenal and intercontinental ballistic missiles. Full video of the segment can be viewed here.
The segment also featured interviews with missileers at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana along with clips from Benedict's interview, which was taped at the Bulletin's Chicago offices on April 29.
U.S. nuclear forces, 2008
In 2007, the United States restarted small-scale production of nuclear weapons for the first time in 15 years, though the reduction of its nuclear arsenal continues.
Why START is important
If both Russia and the United States allow the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty to lapse, they will lose another opportunity for dialogue.
Nuclear cruise missiles
The proliferation of cruise missiles equipped with nuclear, biological, or chemical warheads has become a central theme in U.S. threat projections and defense planning.
