Former senators Richard Lugar of Indiana and Sam Nunn of Georgia say they're pleased that efforts to disarm Ukraine of its nuclear weapons worked two decades ago, but they caution that the threat from weapons of mass destruction around the world is still high.
Former U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana is giving a foreign policy talk at Yale University.
Former Sen. Richard Lugar, the six-termer from Indiana who lost his primary fight to tea party favorite Richard Murdouck last May, has picked up a new title: He's been awarded the Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or KBE, his office announced.
Little noticed in the warm glow of President Barack Obama's landmark visit to Myanmar was a significant concession that could shed light on whether that nation's powerful military pursued a clandestine nuclear weapons program, possibly with North Korea's help.
Orrin G. Hatch appeared to be coasting to victory in Utah's Republican Senate primary, and then Richard G. Lugar happened.
For Senate Republicans, 2012 is starting a lot like 2010. They have a shot at taking control away from Democrats as long as insurgent conservatives who are defeating the party's more establishment candidates in primaries don't frighten too many independent voters like they did two years ago.
An insurgent Republican lawmaker in Nebraska will square off against former Sen. Bob Kerrey this fall in the state's U.S. Senate race, as Democrats look to hold onto the Senate seat and control of one part of Capitol Hill.
Smashmouth politics, the norm nearly everywhere else, has overtaken "Indiana nice" on the banks of the old Wabash. A lion of the Senate ‚ as Senate lions are now measured — is likely to fall today.
Once upon a time, summertime was camp-meeting time all over Indiana, but now not quite so much. Nevertheless, it's a season for politicians to hit the sawdust trail in search of something that passes for the old-time religion. Judgment Day is at hand.
Richard Lugar was President Nixon's favorite mayor when he was back home in Indiana, and now he's President Obama's favorite senator. And why not? He represents a mostly red state but his heart bleeds true blue.
President Obama is pressing for the ratification of an arms control treaty with Russia when the Senate returns for a lame-duck session on Nov. 15.
President Obama and a fellow Democrat, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, are demanding that the Senate ratify the New START arms-control treaty with Russia during this year's lame-duck congressional session. They argue that the absence of inspections since START I expired on Dec. 5, 2009, is creating holes in U.S. information on Russia that could give Moscow significant advantages over us in coming years. The real reason for the rush, however, is that Mr. Obama fears that New START is not holding up well in the ratification process. If the November elections follow current projections, they will doom the treaty once and for all.
In a remote corner of Southern Europe, the United States and Albania recently scored a quiet but important victory in the battle against the spread of weapons of mass destruction. This success points the way toward helping resolve some of the greatest threats the world faces from nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.
The contrast could hardly be more stark: While American troops are risking their lives (and achieving success on the battlefield) in places like Baghdad and Baqubah, Harry Reid and the senatorial circus return to Washington today to begin another week in which they will signal retreat and weakness again and again. The fastest way to get airtime on ABC, NBC, CBS or CNN or fawning coverage in The Washington Post, the New York Times editorial pages or the Associated Press is if you adopt a defeatist posture on the war in Iraq — especially if you take the Jim Baker/Lee Hamilton view that Washington's purported refusal to talk with Iran and Syria is the reason that they undermine American interests whenever they can. By contrast, Sen. Joe Lieberman's yeoman work in highlighting Iran's destructive role — and the fact that Al Gore's former running mate has come to the conclusion that raids against terrorist bases on Iranian territory may be necessary to achieve victory in Iraq — is virtually ignored.
Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., the most prominent voice in Congress on nonproliferation, said international concern would persist until Myanmar gives full disclosure of its relationship with Pyongyang.
"The concern of the international community will not pause until full disclosure of the North Korea-Burma relationship is achieved," Lugar said.
