It turns out that North Korea may now have an intercontinental ballistic missile and nuclear weapons capability bringing even Washington DC within reach that even the Chinese and the Russians thought thought it would not acquire before 2040. A North Korean nuclear challenge that no-one outside Pyongyang imagined the US would face for another 20 years is already upon us.
At its most basic level, this is a catastrophic failure of intelligence, showing how completely wrong about North Korea at least in this respect the US and most of the rest of the outside world has been.
It's a long list:
1. North Korea;
3. Israeli spies working in US intel;
4. Attack on USS Liberty by Israel;
5. No WMD in Iraq;
6. Missile technology transfers to China;
7. A-Bomb production in Israel;
8. Attack at Benghazi
So much more: http://foreignpolicy...gence-failures/
The US government has the MOST EXPENSIVE INTELLIGENCE SERVICES IN THE WORLD!!! 17 different agencies, and not one of them figured out that sending missile guidance technology to China would end up in North Korean missiles???
North Korea can now deliver atom bombs to Washington, D.C. faster than Domino's can deliver a pizza to the White House.
Good work CIA
Great Job, NSA
If Congress or Trump doesn't cut your budget to zero, consider yourselves lucky, because anyone looking at your track record would do exactly that, because your "intel" isn't worth a bag of kitty litter.
