Reporting from Washington - The Obama administration is releasing a major statement on nuclear weapons policy that will herald a further shrinking of the U.S. arsenal, even as it rejects some sweeping steps advocated by arms control advocates.
The statement, to be released Tuesday, will announce that the arsenal will shrink by thousands of warheads, and it will further restrict when the weapons may be used, U.S. officials say. But the administration has rejected proposals to declare that the "sole purpose" of nuclear arms is deterrence, nor will it promise that the United States won't be the first to use nuclear weapons in a war, say people who have been close to the discussions.
The document, called the Nuclear Posture Review, is an important part of President Obama's program to reduce nuclear arms, which moves into a higher gear in the next few days. Obama will sign a U.S.-Russian arms treaty in Prague, the Czech capital, on Thursday and will host a nuclear security summit in Washington next week.
His review is expected to omit some of the more hawkish statements made in 2001 in President George W. Bush's review.

Well, Obama wouldn't want to limit his options in dealing with the Tea Party movement.
As soon as Obama is outtathere the policy changes so all the funny little foreigners best keep a good grip on their backsides anyway.
OBAMA TELLS WORLD: USA WILL NOT USE NUKES IN SELF-DEFENSE
WEAKNESS IS STRENGTH
Stupididity is smartishness.
This man is a nimrod, he won’t defend us when we are attacked again. He’ll try to heal and find common ground.
What a dipchit.
Reversal begins in November.
Bump and Ping.
zer0 will do more for Republicans than they could do for them selves
Is this the one where he says we won’t use nukes even if hit? It’s like some kind of freakin’ invitation to hit us...
With each passing day a new outrage. This man is not an American. It’s as if China, Cuba or North Korea sent someone here to govern the country.
He is the most outwardly anti-American person ever to hold office. At least “Jimmuh” tried to act as if he was the President of the USA, and not some advocate of everything un-American on a mission to punish the American people.
Come on Novemebr 2010 and 2012...get here soon so that America can put an American back in the White House.
It's scary to think that this bratty, spoiled Child in Chief has the nucular football at his disposal.
In a infantile fit of rage at the opposition from some Americans, he'd have no problem eliminating what he considers to be problematic for his agenda.
And mock them after he did it.
Who authored this document?
0bama having ANYTHING to do with developing nuclear weapons strategy is like giving a 4 year old kid a chainsaw and telling him to perform brain surgery on the family dog.
I felt much safer when we had 10,000 or so warheads. Cal lme crazy.
As soon as Obama is outtathere the policy changes
that’s true, but first we have to SURVIVE this regime.
He’s not stupid. He’s evil. And he’s out to obliterate western civilization.
Anything Obama signs is not a valid treaty until ratified.
