Stockpile Stewardship and Management Programmes  http://www.cnduk.org/briefing/cheval~1.htm

Assembled by Alan Simpson, UK MP for Nottingham South, William Peden, and Louise Edge, the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, has just published an interesting Special Report on the Stockpile Stewardship and Management Programmes of the US and the UK. You can find it under the title "The Next Chevaline Scandal?" at the URL indicated above; also, you can request this article from the WNII editor

Nautilus Institute Report on U.S.-Japan Nuclear Relations  http://www.nautilus.org/nukepolicy/Nuclear-Umbrella/index.html

In July, the US-based Nautilus Institute released a report that reviews U.S.-Japan nuclear relations as they unfolded from the beginning of the Cold War until the early 1990s. The report, which builds on U.S. government documents recently declassified and released under the Freedom of Information Act, adds news weight to assertions that the United States routinely brought nuclear weapons into Japanese ports despite Japan's non-nuclear policy. The report uncovers that part of the U.S. nuclear war plan itself -- the Single Integrated Operational Plan (SIOP) -- was built at U.S. facilities in Japan.
