Newly uncovered evidence suggests the seemingly bombshell news North Korea now possesses the capability to fit a miniaturized nuclear warhead onto a missile isn’t so bombshell after all.
In a report by The New York Times four years ago, this exact same “bombshell” was revealed: “A new assessment by the (Defense Intelligence Agency) has concluded for the first time, with ‘moderate confidence,’ that North Korea has learned how to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be delivered by a ballistic missile.”
Then why is this news only now getting widespread attention? Because of the Obama administration, according to Fred Fleitz, the senior vice president for policy and programs with the Center for Security Policy.
Writing for Fox News, Fleitz explained how the current crisis ties back to crucial Obama administration decisions — and dishonesty — on dealing with North Korea. In short, the Obama White House purposefully tried to bury this disclosure four years ago by claiming most intelligence officials disagreed with the DIA’s assessment. None of this is happening in a vacuum.
“The DIA report represented inconvenient facts that threatened President Obama’s North Korea ‘strategic patience’ policy — a policy to do nothing about North Korea and kick this problem down the road to the next president,” he wrote.
“Obama officials tried to downplay the DIA assessment to prevent it from being used to force the president to employ a more assertive North Korea policy.”
Now fast forward to Tuesday, when a “bombshell” story by The Washington Post rehashed the same basic news the Times published four years ago; and ask yourself this: “What’s the difference between then and now?”
Fleitz theorized that since President Donald Trump hasn’t condemned the latest report, the intelligence information contained within it was likely purposefully given to The Post to advance the president’s agenda.
“That is, instead of concealing intelligence to avoid taking action against the tough North Korea problem like the Obama administration did, the Trump administration publicized this same intelligence to demonstrate the seriousness of this threat and why decisive action by the United States is required,” he wrote.
Feitz’s piece set off a chorus of outrage on social media.
In 2013, Obama covered up existence of North Korea’s mini-nukes https://t.co/4iDHMj0AUU

Here’s the bottom line: Instead of pulling up his pants and acting like an actual leader, Obama used subversion and subterfuge to prop up his plan of appeasement — and because he did that, North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un had enough time to continue perfecting his nuclear technology.
And now, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama’s cowardice and lies, Kim’s regime has the capability to not only fit a miniaturized nuclear warhead onto an intercontinental missile, but to also, strike the American homeland with a nuclear warhead.
Thanks, Obama …
