Rewarding the worst of the world's worst evil doers. This isn't diplomacy. This is wicked.
Do you still believe the O-lie that Bill Clinton did not deliver a mesaage from Obama when he retrieved the kidnapped journalists?
WASHINGTON — The Obama administration said today it is willing to hold direct talks with North Korea over its nuclear weapons if it first resumes international negotiations.
Despite reports of his declining health, North Korean leader Kim Jong Il seems fully in charge of the reclusive communist country, White House national security adviser James Jones said.
Jones said former President Bill Clinton passed no official messages and made no promises during his mission last week to bring home two American journalists convicted of illegally entering North Korea and held in prison.
Making the rounds of the today talk shows, Jones added few details. He did say Clinton "was able to convey his personal views of the issue of the moment, which is making sure nuclear weapons do not appear on the Korean peninsula."
The North has developed a nuclear weapons capability, tested two devices and fired missiles theoretically able to carry a nuclear warhead.
It's a 30 million man gulag, a nuclear proliferator provided nukes and weaponry to Islamic terror regimes as well as Burma and Obama is playing nicer with Kim Jong Il than with...Israel. Ugh.
Jones said North Korea has said it wants better relations, and both Jones and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice said the United States is ready to resume the kind of direct talks held in the latter years of the Bush administration.
"North Koreans have indicated that they would like a new relation," Jones said. "They've always advocated for bilateral engagement. We have put on the table in the context of the talks we would be happy to do that if, in fact, they would rejoin the talks."
