+ - Who Should Manage the Nuclear Weapons Complex, Civilians or Military?-> 1

Submitted by Lasrick
Lasrick (2629253) writes "For the first time since 1946, Congress is seriously debating whether the US nuclear weapons complex should be under civilian or military control. That the article is in the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is significant, as it was many of the scientists who founded BAS who argued for civilian control in the wake of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. They believed that atomic energy was too destructive, and the military too secretive, which would possibly thwart scientific discovery and erect a major obstacle to international control and cooperation. Great read on how the management has changed over the decades and the discussion that needs to happen before Congress acts."
