Video: At the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, President Obama Calls for Slashing Nuclear Weapons


    At the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, almost exactly 50 years after President John F. Kennedy delivered his “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech (June 26, 1963), President Obama calls for a one-third reduction of the world’s nuclear stockpiles. According to President Obama, “We may no longer live in fear of global annihilation, but so long as nuclear weapons exist, we are not truly safe…And I intend to seek negotiated cuts with Russia to move beyond Cold War nuclear postures.”
