Secretary of State John Kerry is in South Korea as the situation on the Korean peninsula continues to intensify. Late yesterday we learned the U.S. now believes North Korea has learned how to make a nuclear weapon small enough to be delivered by a ballistic missile. This is not good news. Apparently the top source for that report was an accidental share by Congressman Doug Lamborn of Colorado. He apparently thought the report was declassified. It was supposed to be "classified." Whoops.
In any case, Secretary Kerry is now saying the Obama administration is working to lower tensions. He also says it would be a mistake for Kim Jong Un to test a missile which could come as early as today. He also says the U.S. is determined not to allow North Korea to be a nuclear power.
