Obama Plans to Reduce Nuclear Arsenal

President Barack Obama plans to make dramatic reductions to the U.S.'s nuclear arsenal, according to an administration official in this New York Times article.
The United States will develop no new nuclear weapons, and would eliminate "redundant" weapons by removing stored warheads from service.
The number of reductions would be "in the thousands," according to a senior administration official.
The plan will be contained in the Nuclear Posture Review, undertaken by each president to determine nuclear policy.
Mr. Obama outlined his nuclear vision last April, calling for the world to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and to abandon cold war thinking, according to the BBC.
