  1. The US was never in compliance with the Treaty or with US law governing aid to proliferators. Israel’s behavior predates the Treaty and law, and there was never any effort to come into compliance.

    1. All of the cases of proliferation from the U.S. to Israel cited in the video postdate the NPT. It is therefore inaccurate to assert that “Israel’s behavior predates the Treaty and law.”

      The relevant US laws conditioning US aid to non-NPT signatory nuclear states were passed in the mid 1970s (Symington & Glenn). It is accurate to say that there has been no effort to place US aid into compliance with Symington & Glenn.
