House holds hearing on nuclear smuggling

Filed under: International HLS,Radiological & Nuclear Threats — by Christian Beckner on May 26, 2006

The Subcommittee on Prevention of Nuclear and Biological Attack of the House Homeland Security Committee held a hearing yesterday on the topic of “Enlisting Foreign Cooperation in U.S. Efforts to Prevent Nuclear Smuggling.” The testimony of the committee’s witnesses – Jayson Ahern of CBP, David Huizenga of the NNSA, Frank Record of the State Dept., and Vayl Oxford of the DNDO – is on the committee’s website at the preceding links. There’s very little new information in the prepared statements, but it provides a solid overview of the current status of efforts in the respective agencies charged with carrying out this important mission.

Update (5/31): A summary of the hearing available here.
