Condoleeza Rice and failed US policy on North Korea

The truth hurts.

Josh Marshall has the best summation yet of the North Korea detonation:

let's review the salient facts one more time.

"Failure" =1994-2002 -- Era of Clinton 'Agreed Framework': No plutonium production. All existing plutonium under international inspection. No bomb.

"Success" = 2002-2006 -- Bush Policy Era: Active plutonium production. No international inspections of plutonium stocks. Nuclear warhead detonated.

Face it. They ditched an imperfect but working policy. They replaced it with nothing. Now North Korea is a nuclear state.

And, yes, when the Democrats win the majority, there will be truth and oversight once again in Washington...

I'm sure that's of great comforat to Rice, Cheney and Mr. Bush.
