SLCM Data Exchanges Revisited
Regular readers know that one of my hobby horses is that the US and Russia should revive the sea-launched cruise missile data exchanges that expired with START as a confidence-building measure because the next agreement will probably have to say something about SLCMs. A short version of my proposal appears in a new Carnegie monograph, Beyond Treaties: Immediate Steps to Reduce Nuclear Dangers.

Billy Koehler died on March 7, 2009, for lack of health insurance. Mitt Romney said on Oct. 10, 2012, that’s impossible. The Republican nominee for president told The Columbus Dispatch newspaper last week: “We don’t have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don’t have insurance.” Technically, that’s true of Billy Koehler. He didn’t die in his apartment. He di
