Sacrificing the NPT on an Altar of Expediency
December 8, 2006


President Bush &
Prime Minister Singh
US nuclear deal with
India threatens to
unravel nuclear
controls and to
spread the bomb
worldwide, warns
NCI's Leventhal.

Congress, by enabling a deeply flawed U.S. nuclear deal with India, is sacrificing the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty and U.S. nuclear law on an altar of expediency. The assumption is that cementing good relations with India is far more important than preserving controls to halt the further spread of nuclear weapons. India has defied those controls from the start. Now we're likely to see a rapid unraveling of resolve that will put nuclear weapons in the hands of more nations and eventually terrorists, too.
