So, last night in Dartmouth you said that the president
should not have sole-authority to use a nuclear weapon, so I just wanted to first thank you for that.
As you may know, there's a bill in the House and another in the Senate
that would make it illegal for the US to use nuclear weapons first.
So I wanted to ask you: Do you support a no first use policy for nuclear weapons?
Yeah, I do support that.
There's absolutely no reason why we would want to use nuclear weapons first.
Awesome. Great. And, could you kind of elaborate on the sole-authority question as well?
Yeah so I talked to someone who's in the military...the nuclear launch chain.
And I was like, “hey, what are the failsafes if you get the call?”
He was like, “no failsafes. We're supposed to launch as soon as possible”.
So I said, “that's horrifying.” And he's like, “oh yeah! It's horrifying”.
And so, then I said, “what can we do that everyone would agree on?”
And so at a minimum, I said, “it shouldn't be dependent upon one man or woman's mental state.
Like, you need at least one other clear thinking individual who has to sign off on that thing."
And so I said, “Well, the Vice President/Chief of Staff makes sense.”
So, we start there.
And that seemed to me to be the logical failsafe that one, that people could agree on,
because I think that we need to be very judicious about something that could
literally cause armageddon and world-wide conflagration.
