We were proud twelve years ago to launch America’s effort to secure weapons of mass destruction, materials and know-how in the former Soviet Union to keep them from falling into the hands of people who would do us harm. This work has been vitally important. It has accomplished important objectives. But today, the scope of the effort does not match the scale of the threat.
