American Double Standard for Nuclear Non-proliferation?

Hosted by

In the Wall Street Journal last week, Jay Solomon reported that the Obama Administration is employing a "double standard" when it comes to the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons technology. What's called "the gold standard" was established in a deal with the United Arab Emirates, which accepted help building power plants but agreed not to enrich uranium on its own soil. Solomon found that another standard is being used in negotiations with Vietnam.  Non-proliferation advocates, like Joseph Cirincione, president of the Ploughshares Fund, are furious.
