You are still way to easy my friend. Your boy stewart just took a small piece of the report and fed it too you and place another discussion in. The part of the NPR he showed you was the part that talked about countries such as Iran and North Korea that were not part of the nuclear proliferation treaty. He actually has deviated from traditional posture of anyone who uses those weapons will be nuked (or could be.)
Mr. Obama’s strategy is a sharp shift from those of his predecessors and seeks to revamp the nation’s nuclear posture for a new age in which rogue states and terrorist organizations are greater threats than traditional powers like Russia and China.
It eliminates much of the ambiguity that has deliberately existed in American nuclear policy since the opening days of the cold war. For the first time, the United States is explicitly committing not to use nuclear weapons against nonnuclear states that are in compliance with the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, even if they attacked the United States with biological or chemical weapons or launched a crippling cyberattack.
White House officials said the new strategy would include the option of reconsidering the use of nuclear retaliation against a biological attack, if the development of such weapons reached a level that made the United States vulnerable to a devastating strike.
Again, half truths dipped in a comedy coating to make it easy digesting for the public.
