Previewing the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit

Filed under: General Homeland Security,Radiological & Nuclear Threats — by Arnold Bogis on February 26, 2014

Last week George Washington University’s Elliott School of International Affairs hosted an event on “Previewing the 2014 Nuclear Security Summit.”

Harvard professor, and nuclear expert, Graham Allison provided his insight regarding the upcoming Nuclear Security Summit. The conversation is interesting on a lot of levels.  For me personally, I was very intrigued by the idea of the summit as an “action-forcing event.”

Despite the amount of time spent on deterrence and non-proliferation, this topic is incredibly relevant for homeland security as any failure in nuclear security can have a potentially large impact on the resilience of our nation.

Will watch the video later today! How many shadow nuclear capable nation-states do you count? By shadow I mean have nuclear tipped missiles or aircraft or could have them anytime they wished to pursue the capability from the light turning green!

Finished the video! Some points of interest! President Obama organized these sessions. The one in 2016 probably the last. Little actually accomplished at sessions in 2010 and 2012. Hope springs eternal?
