Stars and Stripes reports that “U.S. nuclear forces were allowed to go downhill amid the distractions of two ground wars, and now need infusions of cash and prestige to keep them safe and effective, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel said Friday.”  

“Those were among the broad conclusions of two reports — one conducted within the Department of Defense and one by outside experts — Hagel ordered in February after a troubling incidents in the nuclear force including a test cheating scandal and drug arrests.”
