Afghan Elections Should Herald Return of American Troops After a Decade of War

Nuclear Summit Showed Continued Commitment to Global Security, Questions Remain

“These achievements enhance U.S. and global security by reducing the risk of nuclear terrorism,” added Reif. “Despite this important progress, however, many important countries with large amounts of nuclear material did not sign-up to key gift baskets, there is still no global requirement for how secure nuclear material should be, and it remains to be seen what international institution or forum will be responsible for sustaining continuous attention and progress on nuclear security once the Summit process ends in 2016.”

Clear opportunities exist to take the politics out of national security spending and ensure that strategic decision makers have a clearer voice in defining priorities."

General (USA ret.) Robert Gard, chairman of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.
