We are now discovering that in addition to getting no information on the Stainists' uranium enrichment plans, the Administration is also empty-handed on the Stalinists' actual nuclear arsenal (Fox News via The Write Side of My Brain):
One item that won’t make the declaration, which the White House says is due Thursday, will be North Korea’s nuclear bombs. The omission means the world will have to wait for an answer to the question at the heart of the nearly six-year-old standoff: Is the North ready to give up its nuclear weapons?
So, now we know that Communist China's de facto colony will be able to keep its nuclear arms stockpile - and keep it secret - and still have the Bush Administration push to have it removed from the list of terror sponsors (Washington Times), all because they blew up part of a nuclear reactor that was on its way to be mothballed anyway (BBC, CNN, Washington Post, and the Washington Times).
This nonsense requires the OK from Congress, and given their respective reactions (CNN), I feel a lot better about endorsing the Republicans in 2006 - unfortunately, they lost. The Democrats who replaced them seem much closer to Ban Ki-moon (Newsmax) than the folks at National Review.
In other words, the next President (see One Free Korea and NRO - Campaign Spot for the candidates' reactions) will saddled with an agreement to bend over backwards to a regime that doesn't keep its word - much like the Bush Administration was saddled with the 1994 Agreed Framework.
Once again, this President hasn't departed from Bill Clinton, but has instead emulated him.
