Since early this year, Washington has been in a state of shock over Chinese espionage -- especially the theft of information about one of America's most advanced nuclear warheads. China is also suspected of stealing the secrets of the U.S. neutron bomb and of penetrating other top secret U.S. military programs. As important as these strategic...

In February, the Director of Central Intelligence, George Tenet, told Congress that North Korea is on the verge of developing ballistic missiles capable of hitting the continental United States. Tenet said that the Taepo-Dong I missile that North Korea tested last August "demonstrated technology that with the resolution of some important technical...

I am pleased to appear today before these distinguished Committees. I have been asked to discuss U.S. policy on satellite exports to China.

Today, China's exports are the most serious proliferation threat in the world. They have been so for the past decade and a half. Since 1980, China has supplied billions of dollars' worth of nuclear weapon, chemical weapon and missile technology to South Asia, South Africa, South America and the Middle East. It has done so in the teeth of U.S....

There is no doubt that Iran is aggressively trying to develop nuclear weapons and the missiles to deliver them. There is also no doubt that Iran has already built chemical weapons.

I would like to begin with the idea of "rogue nations"--now thought to include Iran, Iraq, Libya and North Korea. This is a new term that the Clinton administration has coined to define the proliferation problem, and to restrict it to these four countries. Unfortunately, it ignores a lot of proliferation. China is a very serious proliferation...

This summer, the German police are suddenly reporting a flood of nuclear smuggling cases. Small amounts of nuclear material have leaked out of the former Soviet Bloc since 1991, but these latest reports are unprecedented. For the first time, more than half a pound of weapon-useable plutonium turned up--confiscated August 10 in the Munich airport...

In roughly one month, we will pass the third anniversary of Iraq's invasion of Kuwait. If Iraq had not invaded Kuwait, it is very likely that Saddam Hussein would be passing a different milestone about now: he would be assembling his first atomic bomb. Two former U.N. inspectors, David Kay and Jay Davis, have estimated that at the time of the...

On June 16, 1992 the U.S. Department of Commerce published its long-awaited list of missile projects in the Third World. The list was supposed to plant a red flag on the heads of secret missile makers by naming them, and thus deny them U.S. exports. Instead, the administration came up short by bowing to special interests. U.S. law forbids U.S....
