CBS journalist Ben Tracy was recently allowed behind the new Iron Curtain in North Korea to witness what the North Korean government said was the destruction of one of their nuclear testing sites.
While the North Koreans may have been telling the truth, Tracy said that they confiscated any equipment that could have detected signs of radioactivity.
So, are the North Koreans being honest? Or was this simply a show for the western media?
As President Reagan said, “Trust, but verify.” And right now it doesn’t seem as if the North Korean government is willing to allow the West to verify whether or not they’re being honest with us.
