A: Nobody seems to know what’s in either one:
In a statement today, Sergei Prikhodko â€“ Russia President Dmitri Medvedevâ€™s senior foreign policy adviser â€“ contradicted the White Houseâ€™s repeated assertion that the treaty that will be signed tomorrow in Prague by Medvedev and President Obama has no substantive linkage between a reduction in offensive nuclear arms and the US plans for missile defense in Europe.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov recently stated that â€œlinkage to missile defense is clearly spelled out in the accord and is legally binding.â€
Are they wrong? ABC News asked a senior Obama administration official.
â€œYes,â€ was the reply.
Apparently, like the Obamacare bill, the nuke agreement will also have to be signed into law before anybody finds out what’s in it — if even then.
And if you missed the Obama/Medvedev press conference in Prague earlier this morning, I’ll save you an hour and sum up Obama’s view: “The safety and security of the world depends on a weaker U.S.”
