The Agreed Framework "broke down... under the Bush administration"?
"Under a 1994 deal with the U.S. during the Clinton administration, North Korea pledged to freeze its nuclear program, then believed to be based on producing weapons-grade plutonium. But the agreement broke down by 2002 under the Bush administration after revelations of a covert effort by the North to produce highly enriched uranium. Pyongyang soon removed 8,000 spent fuel rods that the International Atomic Energy Agency was monitoring and began to reprocess them into weapons-grade nuclear fuel.
Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday at panel discussion on his mediation of 1994 deal, said that the agreement is "in the wastebasket" because the Bush administration turned its back on the deal and labeled North Korea part of an "axis of evil."
The Bush administration has said it believed the Clinton policy ignored key elements of North Korea's activities."From N. Korea may be preparing for nuke test.
Did anyone else read this? Does it seem more than a tad biased to anyone other than me?
