Penning a commentary in the Jan. 4 Wall Street Journal, George Shultz (former Secretary of State), William Perry (former Defense Secretary), Henry Kissinger (former Secretary of State), and Sam Nunn (former chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee), wrote that although nuclear weapons were necessary during the Cold War, today reliance on them for deterrence is “becoming increasingly hazardous and decreasingly effective.”
