Former disgraced President Bill Clinton is a big reason why North Korea has nuclear weapons.
Bruce Klingner, a former CIA deputy division chief for Korea, told Fox News the rogue regime in Pyongyang is closer than people realize to adding operational ICBM missiles to its arsenal — large-range weapons capable of carrying a nuclear payload that could cross the ocean and strike America…
…At least one foreign-policy expert said he traces North Korea’s current saber-rattling to a nuclear deal made two decades ago by President Bill Clinton.
On Oct. 18, 1994, Clinton approved a plan to arrange more than $4 billion in energy aid to North Korea over the course of a decade, in return for a commitment from the country’s Communist leadership to freeze and gradually dismantle its nuclear weapons development program, according to The New York Times.
The “complex” deal was to de-escalate the situation on the Korean peninsula, where the two Korean nations never negotiated a peace treaty after the Korean War ended in armistice in 1953.
“This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world,” said Clinton in 1994. “It’s a crucial step toward drawing North Korea into the global community.”
The Clinton’s sure have a way of screwing up the world!
