Bush guts nuke treaty
New York Times |
"It is astonishing, and frightening, that the Bush administration is now pushing to strip the teeth from a proposed new treaty aimed at expanding the current international bans on the production of weapons-grade uranium and plutonium. With talks on the new treaty set to begin later this year, the administration suddenly announced last week that it would insist that no provisions for inspections or verification be included. This reversal of past American positions - ignoring Ronald Reagan's famous cautionary advice, 'Trust, but verify'' - is all the more disturbing because it guts a treaty that could have significantly advanced President Bush's oft-stated goal of 'keeping the world's most dangerous weapons out of the hands of the most dangerous regimes.'"
