DEFENSE NUCLEAR NONPROLIFERATION

Threat and Response: The convergence of heightened terrorist activities and the ease of moving materials, technology, and information across borders has made the potential of terrorism involving weapons of mass destruction (WMD) the most serious threat facing the Nation. Preventing WMD from falling into the hands of terrorists is the top national security priority of this Administration. The FY 2007 budget request for Defense Nuclear Nonproliferation represents an effort to protect the United States (U.S.) and its allies from this threat.
