North Korea SNAFU
Josh Marshall has the goods on the latest intelligence failure. Here’s the short version, back in 2002, we pulled out of our agreed framework with North Korea because we were sure they were secretly enriching uranium in violation of the agreement. Once we pulled out of teh framework, we allowed them to process a lot of plutonium, which culminated in them testing a bomb last year. Now it looks like we weren’t so sure they were processing uranium after all. Yikes.
