    U.S. food shipments to get North Korea back to the table

    The Obama administration is using humanitarian food aid to leverage North Korea's willingness to reopen talks to dismantle the nation's nuclear program. International inspectors are the first step.

    Denuclearization pledges

    In 1994, North Korea signed the U.S.-North Korea Agreed Framework with the United States. North Korea thereby agreed to end its graphite-moderated nuclear reactor program, including the construction of a 200 MWe power reactor at Taechon, in exchange for the construction of two 1000-MWe light-water reactors at Kumho. Construction of these was started in 2000 by the Korean Peninsula Energy Development Organization, but was suspended in November 2003. Under the Six-Party Talks held on 19 September 2005, North Korea pledged to end all its nuclear programs and return to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, submitting to international inspections in return for benefits including energy aid and normalization of relations with Japan and the United States.

        build weapons out of sight ?
        Pressing them for full access to the things they said they were giving up , turns out to have been the correct thing to press for seeing as they have not kept their word .

        What would you have done instead ?
        Would you have taken them at their word they they were not going to pursue the bomb ?

        The liberal-leaning Talking Points Memo took Kessler to task for giving Four Pinocchios to a Democratic web petition on Medicare, saying the errors he allegedly made “were not just small misses, but big belly flop misses.”[26] The Obama White House issued a statement titled “Fact Checking the Fact Checker” after Kessler gave Obama Three Pinocchios for statements he made on the auto industry bailout.[27] The Democratic National Committee released a statement denouncing “Kessler’s hyperbolic, over the top fact check of the DNC’s assertion that Mitt Romney supports private Social Security accounts.”[28]
