TPM: Let's review the Korean facts

Talking Points Memo: by Joshua Micah Marshall October 11, 2006 02:29 AM: In the face of Condi and McCain blaming the Clinton administration for the nuclear problems in North Korea today, "let's review the salient facts one more time.

'Failure' =1994-2002 -- Era of Clinton 'Agreed Framework': No plutonium production. All existing plutonium under international inspection. No bomb.

'Success' = 2002-2006 -- Bush Policy Era: Active plutonium production. No international inspections of plutonium stocks. Nuclear warhead detonated.

Face it. They ditched an imperfect but working policy. They replaced it with nothing. Now North Korea is a nuclear state."
