BBC News | ASIA-PACIFIC | US grants N Korea nuclear funds
Yeah, it's from April. Here's a fun tidbit from the article, however.
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".
No inspectors? Axis of Evil? Where's the American media?
