President Obama and Nuclear Tests

International & National Security Law Practice Group Teleforum Monday, September 26, 02:00 PMFederalist Society Teleforum Conference Call

In 1996, President Bill Clinton signed the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, but the treaty did not go into effect because the Senate refused to ratify it. Twenty years later, the Obama administration still favors ratification of the treaty as part of its nuclear disarmament strategy. President Obama appears to be attempting to go around the Senate by signing a U.N. Security Council Resolution that would, according to a National Security Council spokesman, “call on states not to test and support the CTBT’s objectives,” but would not be legally binding. Here to debate the international & national security law implications of these actions are Professor Kontorovich of Northwestern University School of Law and Professor Spiro of Temple Law School.
