For decades, Senator Richard Lugar has pushed for sensible solutions to strengthen American and global security, frequently reaching across the aisle to forge compromises for the common good. He fought tirelessly for arms reduction agreements to reduce the nuclear threat. With his friend Sam Nunn, he wrote the Nunn-Lugar legislation, which has led to the cooperative dismantlement of thousands of nuclear missiles once targeted on the United States, the destruction of thousands of tons of chemical weapons, and security improvements that have helped keep thousands of nuclear weapons and their essential ingredients out of terrorist hands. Senator Lugar has long stood for the responsible use of U.S. power, coupled with principled cooperation around the globe. He will be sorely missed.
