Bush and Nukes

NPR's Mike Shuster reports that the Bush administration is reviewing strategic defence policies, including all those relating to U.S. nuclear weapons. Ten years after the Cold War there have been few changes in U.S. nuclear weapons policy. But that may all change under the new Bush administration which may seriously consider unilaterally reducing the U.S. stocks of nuclear warheads because they are not needed for defence or deterrence.
