Reader comment on item: Korean Delusions [of Appeasement]

Submitted by Jon W (United States), Oct 19, 2002 at 19:33

The Administration knew about the North Korean nuclear arms for 12 days before they released the information. Why did they wait? Answer: they were waiting for the vote on Iraq to get passed first. They knew that this knowledge would shift the dynamic of the vote in Congress. Because all the arguments used to justify striking Iraq now apply doubly so for North Korea. The debates in Congress would have been much more interesting if this information had been widely spread prior to the debate. I think the vote might not have even happened.
