It Almost Went Boom: Nuclear Near-Misses In US

During The Cold War American military leaders and average citizens were sometimes kept awake at night worrying about a possible nuclear strike by the Soviet Union. US foreign policy continues to focus on nuclear programs in other countries like North Korea and Iran but Eric Schlosser says the nuclear threat is also here at home. David Hyde talks with the author of "Fast Food Nation" about his new book, "Command and Control."

Produced by Arwen Nicks.
