Citizen Inspection at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, November, 2002
On August 3, 2003, Nebraskans for Peace and other regional peace groups conducted a Citizens Weapon Inspection at U.S. Strategic Command Headquarters. The Citizens Inspection was part of a weekend of activities, SpeakOut at StratCom 2003, intended to raise awareness of the key role played by U.S. Strategic Command in efforts by the United States to make nuclear weapons more useable in warfare. These efforts range from research on nuclear weapons with new military capabilities, such as the Robust Nuclear Earth Penetrator, to upgrades in the computer systems and software that Strategic Command would use to plan and execute nuclear strikes.
The Citizens Inspection was led by Western States Legal Foundation Program Director Andrew Lichterman and Greg Mello, Executive Director of the Los Alamos Study Group of Albuquerque, New Mexico. They delivered a letter documenting the participation of Strategic Command in planning for the deployment and use of weapons of mass destruction.
