Administration Almost Admits to Lying About NK, Heavens Open Up and Prepare to Swallow Earth
Remember 2002, when we were all flyin' high on paranoia and dread? Those reassuring warpigs in the Bush Administration knew what we needed: more enemies with more firepower, to keep America on its toes. And so Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and North Korea was enriching Uranium.
We bravely we cut off North Korea's oil and they threw out the weapons inspectors. Now we're all five years older, and because things are going so swimmingly in Iraq, the Bush administration has done the gentlemanly thing and admitted that NK's never really been all that likely to enrich uranium any time soon, sorry about letting them alone long enough to finish making their plutonium bomb, the one we all knew about.
"The question now is whether we would be in the position of having to get the North Koreans to give up a sizable arsenal if this had been handled differently," a senior administration official said this week.
While this near-mea culpa looks like it may signal a new, more rational and diplomatic Bush administration approach to foreign policy, it's seems more likely to us that it's just a reallocation of precious intelligence-abusing resources from one boring, non-Muslim threat to a more exciting one that fits the War on Terror narrative a little better. North Korea was always the weak link in the Axis of Evil if you ask us. You ever seen those Kim Jong-Il propaganda videos? More like the public access of evil!
