The Nuclear Vault: U.S. Nuclear Detection and Counterterrorism, 1998-2009

The National Security Archive at The George Washington University is always on the lookout for new and compelling government documents, and this latest addition to their Nuclear Vault is quite an astonishing find. This collection of documents was compiled by researcher Jeffrey T. Richelson and released in late January 2009. Richelson came across these compelling documents while doing research for a book on the United States' Nuclear Emergency Search Team (NEST) and its activities. This particular collection contains 22 documents related to NEST's activities during the period 1998 to 2009. The documents cover the various operations NEST has been involved in, along with information about their relationship and interactions with over government agencies. It's an engaging clutch of materials, and one that will be fascinating for anyone with an interest in national security.
