Obama Administration Reportedly Knew North Korea Could Create Miniaturized Nuclear Weapons – Did Nothing

According to a new report from FOX News, the Obama administration was aware that North Korea was capable of creating miniature nuclear weapons but did next to nothing about it. Obama knew he would be able to hand the problem off to the next president.

Here’s part of the report:

Obama administration knew about North Korea’s miniaturized nukes

Tuesday’s bombshell 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 that 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 Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn’s disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

It was clear what Obama officials were doing in 2013. 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.

Keep this report in mind the next time the liberal media attacks Trump over this. They are working very hard to place him at the center of blame.
