The Mainstream media reported on 26 June 08:
North Korea declared its nuclear plans to China, a first step towards complying with the U.S. on policy. President Bush called the move a first step, easing some sanctions against N.Korea.
Yet, on the same day, the White House published this:
I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, find that the current existence and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, and I hereby declare a national emergency to deal with that threat. I further find that, as we deal with that threat through multilateral diplomacy, it is necessary to continue certain restrictions with respect to North Korea that would otherwise be lifted pursuant to a forthcoming proclamation that will terminate the exercise of authorities under the Trading With the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. App. 1 et seq.) (TWEA) with respect to North Korea.
Somebody is grossly misinformed (I think it’s me)…
