Last year appearing before the House Armed Services Committee on behalf of the Bush Administration, national nuclear weapons chief Thomas D’Agostino discussed plans for consolidating the sprawling weapons complex he administers.
This year, carried over in his position by the Obama Administration, D’Agostino stressed proliferation and non-proliferation during his presentation to the committee, two sides of the same coin, which represents the arms reduction priorities of the new regime.
“My job is to take the President’s Prague speech (laying out his vision for nuclear-free world) and turn that into real programs that can get implemented out in the field,” D’Agostino said.
On Thursday, after serving in a continuing capacity for eight months as administrator of the National Nuclear Security Administration, D’Agostino was named to retain his current position by President Obama. He will not need to be reconfirmed by the Senate.
Senator Jeff Bingaman, D-N.M., offered a key endorsement, if not exactly a resounding one, in an announcement Thursday.
