ADVISORY: CAP to Host Panel on Setting Priorities for Nuclear Modernization
Washington, D.C. — The Center for American Progress will host an important and timely discussion on how the Obama administration and Congress can modernize the nation’s nuclear arsenal within its existing budget constraints—without undermining its moral boundaries in the battle against nuclear proliferation and its conventional capabilities to confront our current national security challenges.
The panel will include General Eugene E. Habiger, former commander in chief of U.S. Strategic Command; Ellen O’Kane Tauscher, former undersecretary of state for arms control and international security affairs; and Todd Harrison, director of defense budget analysis at the Center for Strategic & International Studies.
In conjunction with the event, CAP will release a report and a web-based interactive that will allow each user to learn about the different nuclear capabilities of the United States and gives them the ability to build their own recommendations.
