    Obama administration defends cuts on nuclear security

     
    WASHINGTON - Just days before he heads to The Hague to meet with world leaders for the third Nuclear Security Summit, President Obama has unveiled a budget that includes more than $220 million in cuts for nuclear security programs in the next fiscal year

    "What I take away from this budget is that there was a lack of leadership in trying to maintain the prioritization of the funding of this issue," said Kenneth Luongo, who served as senior adviser in the Energy Department on non-proliferation issues during the Clinton administration and is now the president of the Partnership for Global Security.

    Kenneth Luongo said:
    "The signal … is we are in retreat on this issue, and I think that is a huge mistake."
