On the 7pm hour of CNN's <i>The Situation Room</i> on Tuesday afternoon, Jack Cafferty admitted President Bush &quot;might have been on to something&quot; when discussing the Axis of Evil in his 2002 State of the Union address (<a href="http://www.exposetheleft.com/">video link from Expose the Left to follow</a>). The topic of the hour was North Korea's long-range missile &quot;testing&quot;. North Korea is a country in Bush's Axis of Evil.

</p><blockquote><strong>CAFFERTY</strong>: That was January 2002, the president referring, of course, to Iraq, Iran and North Korea. Fast forward four years. The U.S. has now been involved in the war in Iraq for well over three years with no end in site. Iran continues its efforts to enrich uranium, insisting it's just for peaceful purposes while many around the world fear they are actually embarking on a nuclear weapons program. And now we have North Korea going ahead today with test missile launches, including the failed launch of at least one long- range missile today. <strong>Looks like President Bush might have been on to something, doesn't it.</strong> Here's the question, which country from President Bush's axis of evil, Iraq, Iran, or North Korea poses the greatest threat to the United States.
