The nuclear threat has diminished, although it is far from gone. In the early 1990s, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, in an unclassified briefing to one of the select committees of Congress, warned that the single most critical threat the United States would face in the next ten years would be in either the chemical or biological arena. The delivery method for those types of agents could well involve terrorist organizations. Presidents and members of Congress have been briefed and are aware of this threat that faces the country.
