Today, we will explore the Department's two other major national defense programs: nuclear nonproliferation, and naval reactors. […] Our nonproliferation programs are able to operate thanks to the strategic stability that our nuclear triad has provided for this country and our allies for over 60 years now. The programs of naval reactors support the most stealthy, enduring leg of that triad -- our submarines. They also ensure that our aircraft carriers have the power to provide American air superiority were needed to keep the peace -- and respond to trouble if it arises."
