This is the November 2, 2011 hearing on "The Current Status and Future Direction for U.S. Nuclear Weapons Policy and Posture," held before the U.S. House Committee on Armed Services, Subcommittee on Strategic Forces. From the opening statement of Henry J. Hyde: "In general, this new and multi-faceted initiative with India has been termed a global partnership, and has been widely hailed as a bold and encouraging development. I personally know of no one who is not in favor of improved relations and enhanced cooperation between the United States and India, which, to my mind and that of many others, is long overdue. Such disagreement as exists on this subject centers primarily on its perceived importance in strategic terms, and on the depth and extent of the anticipated cooperation. Some see a nascent and far-reaching alliance between our two countries that will have a dramatic, perhaps even transforming, geostrategic impact. Others place this new relationship in a more modest context, viewing it as a useful endeavor, but far from heralding a fundamental change in the nature of our relationship, or in the balance of power in Asia." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Loretta Sanchez, Michael Turner, Thomas P. D'Agostino, C. Robert Kehler, James N. Miller, Ellen O. Tauscher, James R. Langevin, Mo Brooks, John C. Fleming, Trent Franks, Doug Lamborn. and Austin Scott.
