In an apparent move to honor a pledge for more transparency, President Obama announced a plan that seems to verge more on irresponsibility.

At Friday’s Nuclear Security Summit in Washington, D.C., the president announced that the U.S. would be making public the full inventory of its nuclear stockpile.

The Washington Examiner reported:

As of Sept. 30, 2013 the nation had 585.6 metric tons of highly enriched uranium, a fact that hasn’t been declassified in 15 years, Obama noted during the summit’s opening session. The last public figure was 740.7 metric tons, and the difference shows the U.S. has reduced its stockpile by more than 20 percent.

“This type of information sharing … is an important part of the effort to strengthen global nuclear security,” the White House stated in releasing the data. “The value of transparency has been highlighted by the United States throughout the Nuclear Security Summit process.”

Obama noted that since the first summit in 2010, more than a dozen countries have completely eliminated their highly enriched uranium and plutonium supplies.

On the closing day of his nuclear summit with 50 other national leaders, Obama also said the Navy is trying to find a way to convert its nuclear submarines away from highly enriched uranium, which can be used to make nuclear weapons


Social media reaction was swift, rebuking Obama for weakening the nation and implying – again – that America is the source of the problems in the world.
