Former Defense Secretary Appraises Present Nuclear Danger

Dec 5, 2016

Creative Santa Fe has launched the Disruptive Futures summit to frame a global discussion in Santa Fe about nuclear weapons and the nuclear threat. The summit kicked off last night with a conversation between former U.S. Secretary of Defense, Dr. William J. Perry, and journalist Eric Schlosser. In 2013 Schlosser authored Command and Control: Nuclear Weapons, the Damascus Incident and the Illusion of Safety, which was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in History.

Former Defense Secretary Perry told Schlosser and the audience at The Lensic last night that the nuclear danger today is more acute than at any time since the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962.
