Many of you have probably read this story by now, but the Obama administration knew the North Koreans were manufacturing miniature nukes four years ago, and pressured the media to downplay the story.
But yes, please tell me how Donald Trump needs to be impeached.
Tuesday’s Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs – left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time.
During an April 11, 2013, House Armed Services Committee hearing, Congressman Doug Lamborn, R-Colo., inadvertently revealed several unclassified sentences from a DIA report that said DIA had determined with “moderate confidence” that North Korea has the capability to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be launched with a ballistic missile.
The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea “strategic patience” policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president. Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.
So this cock-holster ignored a growing threat, suppressed the weapons information, and left the next president holding the bag. Obama did the same thing with the Iranian nuclear deal. The piece of garbage sacrificed this country’s safety to stroke his own massive ego.
