Follow the money

This article from April, 2002 certainly raises a few questions in light of the claimed nuclear test by North Korea...

'The US Government has announced that it will release $95m to North Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear programme, which the US suspected was being misused.

Under the 1994 Agreed Framework an international consortium is building two proliferation-proof nuclear reactors and providing fuel oil for North Korea while the reactors are being built.

In releasing the funding, President George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.

President Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the national security interests of the United States".

Of course the outcome of of all this wavering from the framework is to blame the very framework that you just wavered from ... or in simple terms ' blame Clinton'

The shifting of responsibility for everything and anything on to the ex president is becoming laughably predictable. It seems that there is no room for responsibility when November elections are just around the corner....

My source for the thought provoking reminder from 2002 is the excellent ICH
