WASHINGTON — President Obama said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that he did not believe that North Korea yet had the ability to miniaturize a
nuclear weapon to fit atop a missile, and he said nothing would shake him from a strategy of refusing to “reward” the kind of provocative behavior
exhibited by Kim Jong-un, the North’s leader.
Mr. Obama, speaking in an interview with Savannah Guthrie of NBC News that was recorded just before the bombings in Boston on Monday, implicitly
dismissed a conclusion by the Defense Intelligence Agency, which said in a report last month that it had “moderate confidence” that the North
already had mastered the technology of building a weapon that could fit into a missile warhead. After the conclusion became public at a Congressional
hearing on Thursday, the director of national intelligence, James R. Clapper Jr., issued a statement saying that the agency’s position did not
reflect the consensus view of the 15 other intelligence agencies.
So there is still doubt, but the general consensus is no.
The best part of this report is this: President Obama said.....
Since I came into office, the one thing I was clear about was, we’re not going to reward this kind of provocative behavior. You don’t get to bang
your — your spoon on the table and somehow you get your way.”
Nice, old Kim is getting his knickers in a twist about bits of cardboard being burnt in Seoul and now this.
Basically being branded a baby by a higher power has gotta hurt huh?
More dummy spitting to come no doubt.
