BBC News (2002): US grants North Korea nuclear funds
Wednesday, 3 April, 2002

The US Government has announced that it will release $95m to North Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear programme, which the US suspected was being misused.

Under the 1994 Agreed Framework an international consortium is building two proliferation-proof nuclear reactors and providing fuel oil for North Korea while the reactors are being built.

In releasing the funding, President George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.

3. Dear god - then people wonder why some of us think he's f'ing things
up on purpose.

President George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.

HELLO!! How stupid can you get.

10. My favorite line from the article.
President Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the national security interests of the United States".

This man has not been held accountable for one utterance from his ignorant lips.

13. Rumsfeld's company gets a 200 mil contract to sell reactors to N.K.
in 2000, and then we give them the funds in 2002? Wouldn't that be charming if the two things were connected? If we not only gave Rumsfeld the contract, but also paid for it with public money? I can only hope.
