Lt. General Robert G. Gard, Jr., Chairman of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation, discusses the “terrorists with nukes” rhetoric at the Nuclear Security Summit, unsecured fissile material in countries that are beyond the limited scope of Nunn-Lugar, the less-than-stellar security at many US and Russian nuclear sites and how getting the facts right on Iran’s nuclear program is difficult even for the well-informed.

  1. Thank You Scott,
    You've made my day and ruined it in the same time. It was very amusing to listen to Mr General Gard pretending to be little Red Riding Hood regarding Iran's nuclear program and how he is peddling all usual fallacies regarding it.
    Thanks to you and Dr. Prather [as a regular listener & reader] I could spot them immediately. On the other hand it's troubling that Mr General is Chairman of the Center for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation.

  2. According to a guest on democracynow this past week, there is NO evidence that any terrorist is trying to get his hands on any kind of nuclear material for either a nuke bomb or a dirty bomb. And what would that guy in S. Africa have done if he'd gotten away with the material? Kinda like what would the dog do if he caught the bus.

  3. "I'm sorry to keep arguing with you, Sir"

    You go Scott! Polite persistence with the facts.

    You stand alone!!!!

    Thank you for keeping up the good work!
