Iran-North Korea-Syria Cooperation, and More from CRS
The executive branch today provides less unclassified information to Congress concerning proliferation of weapons mass destruction than it used to do, a new report from the Congressional Research Service observes.
“The number of unclassified reports to Congress on WMD-related issues has decreased considerably in recent years,” the report said. “Congress may wish to consider requiring additional reporting from the executive branch on WMD proliferation.” That suggestion appeared in a new CRS report entitled Iran-North Korea-Syria Ballistic Missile and Nuclear Cooperation, published April 16, 2014.
Other new and newly updated CRS reports that Congress has withheld from online public distribution include the following.
