Nuclear Non-Proliferation

On July 28, 2006 Tauscher joined Ed Markey and Barbara Lee in signign a letter to the U.S. State Department's Inspector General demanding investigation for the delay in disclosing sanctions aginst two Indian firms for doing business with Iran until after a vote on the 2006 U.S.-Indian Nuclear Agreement. The sanctions were imposed under the U.S. Iran-Syria Non-proliferation Act. Source: n.a. "Probe Sought on Delayed US Report on India." Washington Post & Reuters. July 28, 2006. On March 9, 2005 Al Jezirah mistakenly reported that Representative Tauscher had disclosed a heretofore unknown 1962 nuclear weapons test in Sudan during a March 2, 2005 hearing of the House Armed Services Strategic Services Subcommittee. In reality, Representative Tauscher had referenced the July 6, 1962 "Sedan" nuclear weapons test at the Nevada Test Site in the United States. The term "Sedan' was mistakenly transcribed as 'Sudan' by both the Federal News Service and FDCH Political Transcripts. See: http://www.fas.org/irp/news/2005/03/sudan.html
