The United States is more than two years ahead of the schedule set under the Moscow Treaty in reducing the number of its nuclear warheads operationally deployed on strategic missiles and bombers, according to congressional and administration sources.

There are fewer than 2,200 deployed warheads, the goal originally set to be reached by Dec. 31, 2012.

“The reduction was initially planned to be met in 2012, then 2010, but was achieved a few days ago,” said Hans Kristensen, director of the nuclear information project of the Federation of American Scientists, who first disclosed the information on his Web site.
