Pentagon withholding nuclear weapons inspection results: report | TheHill
The Pentagon has started withholding the results of inspections of its nuclear weapons operations, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.
Overall inspection results, such as “pass-fail” grades, at the country’s nuclear weapons facilities were previously made public. But the Pentagon told the AP that by ending such disclosures, it’s hoping to withhold key information about the U.S. nuclear arsenal from the country’s adversaries.
U.S. nuclear weapons operations have faced a bevy of embarrassing failings and shortcomings in past year stemming from security blunders, substandard performance, insufficient funding and poor leadership.
