In his recent speech at Hiroshima, President Obama said the use of atomic weapons should serve as a "moral awakening" to pursue his vision for a nuclear-free world. Unfortunately, he severely understated both his own efforts to achieve this, and the most pressing threat that these weapons will spread. Obama should emphasize how the United States is actively and earnestly undertaking unprecedented steps toward nuclear disarmament. He should then leverage this against Iran's efforts to make a mockery of his vision.

Sunday's New York Times Magazine story by David Samuels on President Obama's deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes has created quite a stir. It's not every day that a senior White House official brags about how the administration has successfully manipulated what he portrays as an ignorant and compliant media, particularly on as critical and contested an issue as last summer's nuclear deal with Iran. The media has not taken kindly to Rhodes' remarks, especially after so many of them carried the White House's water.

VADM John Bird, USN (Ret.) and Gemunder Center Associate Director Jonathan Ruhe write in RealClearDefense that to meet the U.S. military’s nuclear deterrent force requirements, it is critical to begin advanced procurement of the Ohio-class replacement starting this year; there is no room left for delay.

We've long thought President Obama should adopt the Costanza approach in matters of national security and simply do the opposite of what his instincts tell him to do, since his policies toward Iran, Israel, ISIS, Russia, and others seem textbook studies of how not to conduct foreign policy.

As the Iran Strategy Council predicted in an initial assessment in September 2015, the strategic balance in the Middle East has already begun tilting dangerously toward Iran, its allies and its proxies, making conflict more likely. Now, the pace and degree to which shift is occurring exceeds even our prior analysis, and threatens to overwhelm the ability of the United States to correct course.
