"The current funding to upgrade all of our warheads and the delivery systems – bombers, missiles and submarines – is going to cost a trillion dollars over the next 30 years. And that's really something we can't afford ... at a time where we're supposedly moving toward less nuclear weapons."

– Paul Kawika Martin, political and communications director with Peace Action, discussing the possibilities of a new nuclear arms race and accidental nuclear war

After more than 13 years of withholding 28 pages of classified documents that were part of the congressional inquiry into the September 11, 2001 al Qaeda attacks on America that killed 3,000 people in New York, Washington, D.C. and Pennsylvania, U.S. intelligence officials released those pages on July 15.
