June 1, 2010
As the twice-a-decade Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty Review Conference came to a close last Friday in New York City, the national media sought out a trio of experts from the Monterey Institute's James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies (CNS) to put the conference's outcome in context.
The New York Times quoted CNS Founding Director Dr. William Potter in an article titled "189 Nations Reaffirm Goal of Ban on Nuclear Weapons."
Dr. Potter was also quoted in a June 1 TIME magazine post that emphasized the “surprising consensus” reached during the treaty review conference.
The Washington Post quoted CNS Senior Research Associate Miles Pomper in a story that downplayed U.S. expectations for the conference.
And the Washington Times quoted CNS Senior Fellow Avner Cohen in a piece outlining Israel’s objections to the language of conference’s final resolution.
