Email a Friend

President Obama and top officials from 47 countries start work today on a plan to keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of terrorists.

David Sanger, Chief Washington Correspondent for The New York Times, writes today that the Washington nuclear security summit is the biggest gathering of world leaders called by a president on a single subject since Franklin D. Roosevelt presided over the summit that created the United Nations.

In this week's Washington Report on WQXR, Sanger talks about the politics and key players in the summit, and about the upcoming vacancy in the Supreme Court following Justice John Paul Stevens' retirement announcement on Friday.
