Under questioning by Dick Lugar, Hillary Clinton expressed that the new administration would pursue arms control agreements and non-prolifiration, specifically a new START treaty with Russia that would reduce the nuclear arsenal, and she reiterated Obama’s desire to rid the world of nuclear weapons. She dismissed the criticism that such agreements are useless because good actors don’t need them and bad actors ignore them, arguing that by pursuing such agreements, the U.S. is in a stronger position to isolate bad actors. In his book, John Bolton makes a strong argument for why such agreements tie the hands of the U.S., especially when it comes to pursuing missile defense.
