Mostly For My American Readers

"With the failure to stop and reverse the spread of nuclear weapons, military planners do not have the luxury of ignoring the possibility that such weapons might be used against military or civilian targets, abroad or at home.

You can download the files from here on the Federation of American Scientists "Project on Government Secrecy" site. You won't enjoy reading it.
