North Korea Up To Its Old Tricks

The North Koreans have announced that they have suspended disabling their nuclear facility at Yongbyon and might even restore its operational capacity because the United States has not removed it from the State Department's list of nations that sponsor terror.

As part of the six country agreement reached last October, North Korea would be removed from the list provided there was an acceptable means to verify their claims. Thus far North Korea has not let anyone verify they have actually decommissioned Yongbyon. So no removal from the list.

Remember what Reagan said. Trust, but verify.
