    >Hill as LBJ on "Assassination Day 1963" fun n' games, USG assistant as "Jackie Kennedy" in trademarkdouble-breasted, strawberry pink and navy trim collared Chanel wool suit with match pillbox hat circa 1991, worn in Dallas, Tx that bloody, fateful day.Taken whilst (Hill) US Ambassador to Iraq, during a masquerade party of some sort for US officials. This is the same man as a State Department officials who went along with the ridiculous SIX PARTY TALKS agreements with North Korea which amounted to nothing, reprehensively gave the enemy aid, allowed them to cheat, and build up their arsenal even more. Under...

    The question on everyoneís mind: Why didnít the United States do more to prevent the progress of North Koreaís uranium-enrichment program? Regrettably, the answer to this question is even more disconcerting than the disclosure itself. Intelligence amassed over the course of nearly two decades on North Koreaís uranium-enrichment program has been an inconvenient truth for most U.S. officials involved in North Korea policy through consecutive U.S. political administrations ó but nowhere was this delusion in more abundance than in the latter years of the George W. Bush administration, in which I served as the director for counterproliferation strategy, covering North...
  • US Ambassador Christopher Hill: N.Korean army "probably not taking civilian direction at this point"

    Ö CHRISTOPHER HILL: Well, I agree that we need a peace process. Our problem right now is, we donít have an interlocutor. Itís very unclear whatís going on in North Korea. Clearly, they have a succession crisis. They have an army thatís basically a law unto itself, thatís probably not taking civilian direction at this point. So, I think we have problems finding someone over there to talk to. And, in the meantime, I think it is very important that we work very closely with the South Koreans. I donít think we want to be in a position of somehow...

    NKorea May Come Off Terror List: White House Wednesday, June 25, 2008 10:50 PM WASHINGTON -- The White House said Wednesday that it could move to take North Korea off a terrorism blacklist "quite soon" after - and if - the North delivers an accounting of its nuclear programs. Washington hoped the secretive Stalinist nation would provide its long overdue "declaration" as early as Thursday, although a senior US official has already said that an inventory of Pyongyang's atomic arsenal will come later. Asked how quickly a full accounting would trigger removal from the US list of state sponsors of...

    President George W. Bush is fond of comparing himself to Ronald Reagan. But as he meets with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak in Washington this week, his policy regarding North Korea's nuclear weapons program looks more like something out of Bill Clinton's or Jimmy Carter's playbook. In dealing with the Soviet Union on arms control, Reagan was famous for repeating the Russian phrase, "Doveryai, no proveryai" (trust, but verify). Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev reportedly once complained to Reagan, "You use that phrase every time we meet." To which Reagan smilingly replied, "That's because I like it so much." This administration...

    U.S. to Strike N.Korea Off Terror List Under 'Secret Deal' The U.S. in a closed-doors deal on Oct. 3 agreed to strike North Korea from its list of state sponsors of terrorism and suspend the Trading with the Enemy Act by year's end provided North Korea disables its nuclear facilities by then, a senior South Korean official says. The official told Korean reporters in Washington last week the Oct. 3 deal ¬ďincludes a list of facilities North Korea agreed to disable. It also includes what the other five nations agreed to do, including the issues of striking North Korea from...
