ABSTRACT
The article presents information on nuclear terrorism. The recent wave of bloodshed in Russia Federation underscores the urgency of the need to prevent terrorists capable of indiscriminate slaughter from acquiring nuclear bombs. To its credit, the U.S. administration has finally launched an ambitious initiative to better secure nuclear and radiological materials, particularly in violence-racked Russia. But unless the Global Threat Reduction Initiative becomes part of a far more comprehensive approach to the challenges of nuclear theft and terrorism, it is destined to fall well short of its goal of safeguarding the American people from the threat of nuclear weapons.
