Fox News: Intel Community Knew About North Korea's Miniaturized Nukes Back in 2013, But Obama -- Get This -- Got Media to Downplay the Story

Obama was never about managing foreign policy crises -- he was about managing the media coverage of foreign policy crises. His theory was always that if the public doesn't know about a threat, then, from a political point of view, he doesn't have any problem.

More evidence of that.

Tuesday's bombshell Washington Post story that the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) has determined North Korea is capable of constructing miniaturized nuclear weapons that could be used as warheads for missiles – possibly ICBMs -- left out a crucial fact: DIA actually concluded this in 2013. The Post also failed to mention that the Obama administration tried to downplay and discredit this report at the time....

The Director of National Intelligence and Obama officials subsequently tried to dismiss Lamborn's disclosure by claiming the DIA assessment was an outlier that did not reflect the views of the rest of the U.S. Intelligence Community.

It was clear what Obama officials were doing in 2013. 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. 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.

Son of a bitch.

I'm knocking off early tonight. I have some kind of bug or something. Maybe just lack of sleep. But I'm exhausted.

19 Obama regularly got his shorts pulled up the crack of his ass by America's enemies -- Putin, the Norks, the Iranians, the Chinese. He always protected his manly image by concealing the fact that he had been made a fool of, even if the facts had serious national security implications.

And the press, our "watchdog of democracy," always cooperated because he was their boy.

So, if I'm North Korea, I see that you're afraid to act, and decide my best strategy is to build a dozen ICBMs, launch one at you to prove they work (maybe two to 'prove' there wasn't just one, much like we did to imperial japan), and threaten to launch the rest if you don't pay up/send oil/send Kate Upton/whatever.

Then what? There would still be bigger upside to acting since there's ten more nukes, so we have to not act again, right?

And we'll spend the next 50 years and $10+ trillion dollars rebuilding the place when we're done.

And it wouldn't surprise me in the least if once the smoke cleared our glorious intelligence agencies were wrong and North Korea didn't have nearly the capability we thought they did.

95 Remember how Bill Clinton sold China dual-use military grade computers, helped them get their Taepo Dong missile successfully through stage three (see Bernard Schwarz and Loral Space and Communications), gave them classified missile and satellite technology, and allowed them access to all American nuclear secrets, which they promptly stole?

Remember that those stolen secrets included information on miniaturizing nuclear warheads?

Remember the MSM's disinterest in finding out precisely WHY the People's Liberation Army of Communist China was so keen on funding Bill Clinton's re-election?

Thanks, Bill Clinton.

Thanks, Barry Soetoro.

If Democrat, the Glorious People's Army will rally around their beloved President who will send out the best minds and best negotiators to find a path to a peaceful solution.

113 Well no need to discuss whether Obama and Co. were dangerously clueless and irresponsible - that's a given. Also, they didn't need to manage the media - the media managed itself. There is no media, not in the historical sense. They simply were a clumsy extension of the bumbling, pathetic WH PR operation.

But playing to a variously dumbed-down, lazy, or racist electorate, it didn't matter. A working majority of the country literally doesn't understand or care about things affecting them unless it happens in the next hour, and it affects them personally.

But - saying the DIA assessment was an outlier is not, on is face, outlandish. In fact while the process of assessing weaponization is bit murkier and more an art than assessing ballistic missile development, which is a fairly sure thing by intelligence assessment standards, I still find it surprising that the Norks could have a deliverable nuke.

No need to overthink this or to become too involved in technical details.

We armed up China by letting them cheat on trade, steal our intellectual property, steal our military secrets (Chinagate) and our last three presidents bowed to them as they used the Norks as their mad dog threat.

Solidly reveal to the average leftist that Obama deceived them as lil fat boy got suitcase (?) nukes ... and they will perhaps understand their lover-boy cheated on them. (make it an episode of "Cheaters")

We needed Star Wars (Reagan) long ago. Instead we put all China through our universities and let them cheat on everything, or just gave/sold it to them.

Also, I think it mattered that the Soviets *really* believed we would end human life on earth rather than leave them in control of it. For MAD to work today, China, Pakistan, Iran, NK, and just for good measure, Saudi Arabia all need to know that if anything happens to us, they all get atomized whether they had anything to do with it or not.

136 The Kim family is secretive and immense largely due to Dear Grandpa's and Dear Dad's inability to keep it in their pants. There are all sorts of half daughters and half sons and aunts and uncles and hey I just found another Kim under this rug to worry about. Intelligence is spotty on most of them, at best, and what we supposedly do know is stuff that could be rumors or things defectors have said and who knows if what they're saying is right.

I haven't even seen a lot on the current Dear Leader. He lived in Europe and went to some posh school there, but there isn't much about him from there beyond little things that don't mean much. One time he said something about taking care of the people or something and that turned into oh he might be a reformer!

Kim Jong-Il had years to consolidate his control of the country before taking the reins. And there are a lot of powerful bodies in the country, various councils and people's organizations and such that can cause problems. He dropped out of sight for several years and then reemerged as the leader after all the payoffs and purging likely took place.

Jong-Un assumed power almost immediately and did not appear to go through this process. It's why we saw some very public purging taking place. I'm not sure he's in total control even now, although I think he must be. I'm sure the behind the scenes violence looked like something out of the Roman Empire.

We don't even know if he's "crazy" or just posturing in order to consolidate his power. I'd bet on the latter, but who knows? When it comes to North Korea it's like the Soviet Politburo on the platform at the May Day Parade but with a giant curtain put up so you can't even see most of them.

169 JJ actually significant opportunities to take it to the mullahs were left unexploited before 2009, specifically 2005-2008. And, ironically, that same administration in fact did not have the same record of fecklessness on NoKo as the ones just before and after it. Though there was a still-unexplained mysterious about-face that happened just as financial warfare against Pyongyang was bearing fruit.

And what does this bit news tell us about HR McMaster who kept on all those Obama flunkies that had to know that the Norks had a miniaturized nukes and why are we just hearing bout it now?

This news is a real game changer. It has to mean a deadly war where many on both sides will likely die, or perhaps the end of the USA if the can is kicked down the road once again.

218 As I noted earlier today, there was a very curious about-face in US policy under Dubya. His administration launched a multi-lateral initiative (Poliferation Security Initiative) that was aimed at all troublesome aspiring proliferators, but really focused on NK and Iran (the other member of the "axis of evil" having been removed by more efficient, direction action).

Financial warfare, making it very hard for the Norks to get, keep, or use their money in the world economy. It worked. They were screaming and begging like Navajos (an old Woody Allen line, don't get it, but it's funny), it was working well enough.

Then - poof. Policy reversal. High-ranking State official resigned over the policy change - which did not even get standard inter-agency review, it was just an ukase from the WH. Very little attention to all this - war on terror was at its height.

Anyway, wild guess for explanation includes the word "Beijing", but nobody has solid info on what happened. Have not seen any references to it in memoirs, nobody is ever asked about it. Odd.

The news, at the time, was mostly sensational reporting of events. The "Who" part of reporting was minimally covered, and "why" was mostly discredited Marxist Revolutionary rhetoric. Plus, the Federal Government agency that specialized in gathering intelligence from foreign sources was prohibited from working inside the US because we don't spy on US Citizens, and the FBI seemed to be ineffective.

238 Yes, Little Boy was used in combat without prior testing, but I don't think miniaturized (and given the throw weight of NoKo designs, we're talking pretty small) warheads would be used without testing. As I said, assessing warhead development is much trickier than assessing ballistic missile development, as the latter requires lots and lots of testing to generate confidence in any system, and all of the testing is subject to surveillance. So assessing warhead testing, which would be underground and not nearly as "transparent" to outside analysts, would I think have a large measure of uncertainty that couldn't be reduced.

And NoKo and Iran have been cooperating on missile development for a loooong time. "Axis of Evil" was 16 years ago, and it predated that. In a stupid world with one - intermittently - serious and responsible super-power, evading the effects of sanctions is child's play, for some things. NoKo offshored some missile testing to Iran back when they caught flak for their stupid test that crossed over Japan.

240 154 So basically, the American Chamberlains are: Carter, Clinton, and Obama. Well, at least there's peace for our time. (Of course, what "our time" means....)

I'll spot you Carter and Clinton. No can do for Obama. Evidence exists that Chamberlain could work a brolly.

I would not compare Obama to Chamberlain at all.
I would compare him to a Hitler sympathizer, a deliberate saboteur.

Right. Obama is not a thinker he's a sycophant, a puppet front man for Soros.

248 Chamberlain was wrong. Obama is on the other side.

Chamberlain was a misguided patriot. Obama is a traitor. Stop calling him weak, misguided, crazy, a dupe. He's a traitor.

Why would he go after North Korea? They are helping Iran get nukes. Getting nukes for Iran is Obama's Number #1 Goal in Life.

Traitor.

I definitely wouldn't make that comparison. Obama likes to shoot from outside.

254 212 Iran has the GDP of Dallas-Fort Worth, almost all of it from a commodity that has to be exported by tanker and exposed pipeline.

1. Declare a State of Hostility exist
2. Declare a Blockade
3. Seize every tanker carrying Iranian oil
4. Disable all oil pipelines out Iran
5. Bomb the single gasoline refinery in Iran
6. Shutdown electric generation in the country
7. Airdrop massive amounts of AK74s and ammo into the countryside, essentially at random.

8. Profit

256 218 As I noted earlier today, there was a very curious about-face in US policy under Dubya... aimed at all troublesome aspiring proliferators, but really focused on NK and Iran...Then - poof. Policy reversal...war on terror was at its height. Posted by: rhomboid

A guess: Forced to back off as the price for Democrats not completely sabotaging troops in the field.

Please don't tell us what "communion wind" is.

258 I'm willing to lose LA and NYC to nukes for the sake of Swirled Peas.

Then we send Obama and Kerry to NK to negotiate our surrender, shortly before nuking NK into oblivion. And by "shortly" I mean seconds after the translator says "welcome to North Korea, Mr Obama and Mr Kerry, how was your flight? "

For bonus points, maybe Mitch McConnell should accompany them. I hear he is quite the djplomat.

We can memorialize the sacrifice of Obama and Kerry by carving out a new Mount Rushmore just for them. And then blow that up too.

259 "media should be at top of list"

Agreed. But take care not to damage the pouty blondes, we can find a use for them.
