Regarding the March 31 Sunday Opinion commentary “Obama’s harmful nuclear illusions” by Douglas J. Feith, Frank J. Gaffney, James A. Lyons and R. James Woolsey:

This deserves a special place in our Guns Make Us Safer mythology. The authors argued that President Obama’s common-sense approach to reducing the level of threat from weapons of mass destruction is actually increasing that threat and that, to reduce it, we need more instruments of annihilation. Given our recent experiences with pointless violence and loss, at home and internationally, this argument is empty.
