The Moscow Treaty
On February 5, 2003 the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously approved a resolution of ratification for the Strategic Offensive Reductions Treaty, the "Moscow Treaty" that Presidents Bush and Putin signed in Moscow in May 2002. The committee had rescheduled its meeting on the resolution at the last moment and few reporters or other observers were present. Senators John Kerry (D-Mass.) and Russ Feingold (D-Wisc.) voiced reservations about the treaty, but they offered no amendments and voted with the rest of their colleagues to send the treaty to the full Senate for consideration. Prior to the committee's action, NRDC issued a series of backgrounders that outline the treaty's serious deficiencies -- which were not addressed by the committee.
