The Obama Administration may face great pressure quickly
to adopt all the policy prescriptions of arms control and disarmament

cam paign promises, such a review would entail struggling
with thorny significant challenges in the arena of disarmament
policy. He should not be unwilling to question his most
fundamental assumptions in this review.
