  • We get a week of headlines from US intel sources saying North Korea is increasing production of nuclear bomb fuel. Now, a story from admin sources that they’re so optimistic about progress with NK that they’re hoping for a second Trump-Kim in NYC this September. When parallel universes collide.

  • It’s great for the US to talk to North Korea, but its astonishing that the Trump administration ignores Pyongyang’s continued work to build up its nuclear arsenal, and pretends that Pyongyang has committed to, in the words of Sec State Pompeo, “fully verified denuclearization.”

    Only time will tell if Trump is wrong about Korea. Time has told us that the Iran deal was a bust, but the people that brokered that got a pass. What an Orwellian world we live in where people continue to forget the mistakes of past administrations - more so if it was an administration they voted in to begin with.
