Obama admin reluctantly admits START treaty with Russia is a failure
The START treaty, negotiated by then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was supposed to make “a safer world” for everyone. The treaty was supposedly designed to reduce nuclear weapons proliferation in the world.
There’s just one problem: while the treaty required the United States to diminish its nuclear arsenal, it actually allowed Russia to increase theirs.
Under Secretary of Defense Christine Wormuth appeared before Congress to explain the START treaty’s failures. As usual with Obama administration officials, answers had to be dragged out of her, but eventually she reluctantly admits that not only does Russia have the ability to increase their nuclear arsenal, Russia has also continued to violate previous arms agreements.
here’s the video:
The START treaty is a big foreign policy black eye for Obama but even more so for Hillary Clinton, who faces the same sort of tough questioning should she decide to run for President.
