U.S. Strategic Posture in an
Increasingly Proliferated World
Wednesday, October 21st
8:00 AM - Noon
South Conference Center
Capitol Hill Visitors Center
In May, the bipartisan Congressional Commission on the Strategic Posture of the United States released its comprehensive Final Report detailing over 100 findings and recommendations on critical issues related to U.S. nuclear strategy. Chief among them was the finding that "so long as nuclear dangers remain, [the United States] must have a strong deterrent that is effective in meeting its security needs and those of its allies." The report was issued in the aftermath of recent proposals for a nuclear-free world in Wall Street Journal and Foreign Affairs articles by distinguished experts, as well as from President Obama in his April Prague speech.
Many believe the Commission's report should be the cornerstone for the U.S. strategic posture as well as its nuclear proliferation and arms control policies.
Hudson Institute held a special morning conference with leading U.S. strategic analysts as well as prominent Members of Congress to discuss the issues raised by this important and comprehensive report.
