Please read article, cited after the quote. Articles open in a new window.

See if you can place this scene:

At the height of a high-stakes bilateral summit, the American president turns to his Russian counterpart and suggests they get rid of nuclear weapons. The Russian president replies, “We can do that. We can eliminate them all.” The U.S. secretary of State says, “Let’s do it.”

Is it from the TV show “The West Wing,” with its idealistic U.S. president, Jed Bartlet, played by Martin Sheen? No, but here’s a hint: This bit of reality was captured on location in Reykjavik, Iceland. Still stumped? Here’s another clue, though it’s a bit of a giveaway: One of the players in the scene was an actor.
