Chuck Hagel Calls for Review of US Nuclear Arsenal

Following allegation of cheating and drug use among Air Force personnel


Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel ordered a review of the nation's nuclear arsenal Thursday after a cheating scandal and allegations of drug abuse among Air Force missile personnel.

Hagel wants a plan in 60 days to determine the reason for problems in the force, actions to deal with them and accountability for those responsible, said Rear Adm. John Kirby, Hagel's spokesman.
