Nuclear Dysfunction

Nuclear Dysfunction

FILE - In this June 24, 2014 file photo, Capt. Robby Modad closes the gate at an ICBM launch control facility in the countryside outside Minot, N.D., on the Minot Air Force Base. The foundation of America’s nuclear arsenal is fractured, and the government has no clear plan to repair it. The cracks appear not just in the military forces equipped with nuclear weapons but also in the civilian bureaucracy that controls them, justifies their cost, plans their future and is responsible for explaining the logical underpinnings of a defense policy that says nuclear weapons are at once essential and excessive.
