James Clapper to Sen. Inhofe: Obama's nuclear disarmament plan is "news to me"

During a Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday, Sen. Jim Inhofe questioned National Intelligence Director, James Clapper, about a recent AP report that says the Obama administration is weighing options for sharp new cuts to the U.S. nuclear force, including a reduction of up to 80 percent in the number of deployed weapons.

"It's new to me", said Clapper.

Apparently, the National Intelligence Director was kept out of the loop.

But, luckily, for Mr. Clapper, Mr. Inhofe was able to keep him abreast of the situation.
