A Commonsense Policy for Avoiding a Disastrous Nuclear Decision: A Conversation with Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, USN, Ret., and Rachel Whitlark

Please join the Center for International Strategy, Technology, and Policy for a discussion with Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, USN, Retired, on his recent publication “A Commonsense Policy for Avoiding a Disastrous Nuclear Decision,” which advocates that the U.S. should respond to an enemy attack by moving to a decide-under-attack option. Joining Admiral Winnefeld is Rachel Whitlark, an assistant professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs. Whitlark will provide remarks based on her recently published article “Should Presidential Command Over Nuclear Launch Have Limitations? In a Word, No.” The event will be moderated by Jenna Jordan, associate professor at the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs.
