  • Bond on New START: A Dangerous Path

    Obama and Medvedev sign new START

    This Monday Vice Chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Kit Bond (R-MO) talked with Center for Security Policy president Frank Gaffney on Secure Freedom Radio about the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START). Gaffney asked Bond about a recent assessment he completed for the committee. Bond responded:

    Obviously, the classified details are available to my colleagues in the secure reading room. I can certainly share with you my conclusions. I think that pushing this new START treaty the administration is taking us down a dangerous path. I think the treaty is weak on verification especially compared to previous treaties like START and the INF treaty. We will have much greater trouble determining if Russia is cheating and given Russia’s track record, that’s a real problem.

      What is new about this, after all john kerry is pushing this on America, and our so called leader is to dumb to see what it will lead to. It is people like obama and kerry, a joke in the Vietnam War, that will bring this country down.
