About This File
Clinton and Gates are pushing hard for the RRW as part of a broad nuclear agreement with the hawks. Obama is using his political capital to block this development but he's on the verge of giving in. Plan dishes Obama a devastating blow and tanks the limited credibility he has been banking on to keep RRW proponents at bay. RRW is bad because it crushes our nuclear credibility at a time when potential proliferators are looking to us to take the anti-nuclear lead. We would not only have to test for RRW, but it would be the type of weapon we'd realistically use.This is a new scenario that has gotten far less coverage than staple agenda items like Health Care and Climate.
