WHY NOW? 31 House Dems Move to Strip Biden of Sole Authority to Launch Nuclear Weapons

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.25.21

A group of 31 House Democrats urged Joe Biden this week to “relinquish” his unique authority to launch nuclear weapons as the Commander-in-Chief; saying “vesting one person with this authority entails real risk.”

“Nearly three dozen House Democrats on Monday called on Biden to relinquish his sole authority to launch nuclear weapons, in the latest appeal to reform the command-and-control structure so that no single person can initiate a nuclear war,” reports Politico.

“As president, two of your most critical and solemn duties are the security of the country and the safeguarding of its nuclear arsenal,” the letter reads.

“Vesting one person with this authority entails real risks,” claims the letter written by Rep. Jimmy Panetta of California. “Past presidents have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concern about the president’s judgment.”

 

“While any president would presumably consult with advisors before ordering a nuclear attack, there is no requirement to do so,” the letter adds. “The military is obligated to carry out the order if they assess it is legal under the laws of war. Under the current posture of U.S. nuclear forces, that attack would happen in minutes.”
