Rubio Wants Nukes Kept on Hair Trigger Alert
I asked Marco Rubio whether he would take our nuclear missiles off hair-trigger alert.
Sen. Rubio stated that because of the tense national security environment these days, he would keep the missiles on hair trigger alert.
I explained to him that Gen. James Cartwright says that hair trigger alert carries too big and fast a risk of accidental nuclear war. I gave him a copyy of Gen. Cartright's recommendations, at which point Rubio said he would study Cartwright's proposal.
