"I believe the proliferation
of weapons of mass destruction presents the greatest threat that the world has ever known.
We are finding more and more countries who are acquiring technology--not only missile
technology--and are developing chemical weapons and biological weapons capabilities to be
used in theater and also on a long-range basis. So I think that is perhaps the greatest
threat that any of us will face in the coming years."
(from Secretary Cohens confirmation
hearing - January 1997)
