Whilst Senator John McCain was criticising Bill Clinton for being responsible for North Korea's nuclear bomb testing this week, it appears it was Bush who was responsible.

Read the article below. It is true, and you can go to the BBC news reference to check it out for yourself. This beggars belief. Yet one more instance of Republicans' utter hypocrisy (and the utter stupidity of this administration's decision making process).

Subject: US grants N Korea nuclear funds

This from the BBC - 4+ years ago:

US grants N Korea nuclear funds

President Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the national security interests of the United States".

The US Government has announced that it will release $95m to North Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear program, which the US suspected was being misused. Under the 1994 Agreed Framework an international consortium is building two proliferation-proof nuclear reactors and providing fuel oil for North Korea while the reactors are being built.

In releasing the funding, President George W Bush waived the Framework's requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.

President Bush argued that the decision was "vital to the national security interests of the United States".

Remember to vote on November 7th, using a PAPER ballot, and let's get rid of these incompetent hypocrites for good.
