"Obama’s odd arms-control secrecy"

By Peter Brookes

"The Obama administration is urging the Senate to ratify the US-Russia Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty — but it won’t release the negotiating record for “New START” to senators who’ve asked for it.

Denying the Senate’s requests raises all sorts of suspicions about the treaty, which would reduce the US strategic nuclear arsenal by about 30 percent and cut our missile silos, bombers and submarines by nearly 20 percent.

Is there is something in the blow-by-blow transcript of the talks with the Russians that the White House doesn’t want senators to see?"
