For tonight’s Conversation With Great Minds – I’m joined by one of the country’s foremost experts on nuclear security and nuclear nonproliferation. As the president of the global security organization the Ploughshares Fund – Jospeh Cirincione is on the frontline of the fight to prevent the spread of dangerous nuclear weapons. He is also a member of Secretary of State John Kerry’s International Security Advisory Board and the Council on Foreign Relations. Before taking his position at the Ploughshares Fund in 2008 – Joseph worked on nonproliferation issues for the U.S. House of Representatives – Center for American Progress – and the Carnegie Center for International Peace. He is the author of a number of books on nuclear weapons policy – including his latest -“Nuclear Nightmares: Securing the World Before It Is Too Late” – a fascinating – and often sobering – look at the reality of modern day nuclear destruction.
