"U.S. and Russia Work Together Against Threat of Nuclear Terrorism"

Op-Ed, GlobalPost

By Kevin Ryan, Director, Defense and Intelligence Project, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and The Elbe Group

The Elbe Group, former leaders of American and Russian intelligence and military organizations, write that the nuclear security summit in Seoul provides an important opportunity to reaffirm U.S. and Russian leadership against the deadly menace of nuclear terrorism — a threat that combines the Cold War peril of nuclear holocaust and the 21st century danger of international terrorism. Kevin Ryan joined other Elbe Group members in writing this oped.
