McNamara: Apocalypse Soon?
« on: May 07, 2005, 10:31:53 AM »
McNamara on Bush's Nuclear Policy:

"At the risk of appearing simplistic and provocative, I would characterize current U.S. nuclear weapons policy as immoral, illegal, militarily unnecessary, and dreadfully dangerous. The risk of an accidental or inadvertent nuclear launch is unacceptably high."

from a recent article in Foreign Policy Magazine:

Robert McNamara was the Secretary of Defense during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  He then went on to lead the World Bank.
