Bill Clinton on the Virtues of North Korean Nuclear Deal

“The United States and international inspectors will carefully monitor North Korea to make sure it keeps its commitments. Only as it does so will North Korea fully join the community of nations.”
— William Jefferson Clinton, 21 October 1994

“Before I take your questions, I’d like to say just a word about the framework with North Korea that Ambassador Gallucci signed this morning. This is a good deal for the United States.


“North Korea will freeze and then dismantle its nuclear program. South Korea and our other allies will be better protected. The entire world will be safer as we slow the spread of nuclear weapons.

“South Korea, with support from Japan and other nations, will bear most of the cost of providing North Korea with fuel to make up for the nuclear energy it is losing, and they will pay for an alternative power system for North Korea that will allow them to produce electricity while making it much harder for them to produce nuclear weapons.”

    This is the person on whose watch the NKs were allowed to make and harvest fissionable materials and mske progress on their offensive missile program. I wonder if Kim made a large donation to his foundation?

    North Korea’s leaders have never indicated that they had any desire to be a part of the community of nations.

    I guess Billy didn’t know that.

    Dick Morris mentioned the other day that the Nork mess is due to Jimmy Carter going to North Korea without permission of the Clinton Administration and came out of the meeting saying he’d solved everything, holding up a paper a la Nevile Chamberlain. Then the Clinton/Gore Administration didn’t have the courage to tell the world that Carter was way past exceeding his authority, with no right to sign anything with the Norks. They chose to let it slide and did a real big pretend-it-was-meaningful operation. Their next moves were totally without concern for consequences down the road.

    Of course, we know Carter had/has a screw loose…and that the Clinton Administration wasn’t far behind.
