[Media Source*] (Reuters) It seems that Libya may have gotten nuclear material from North Korea--at least two tons of it!
Now, intelligence officials say, extensive testing conducted at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee over the last several months has concluded that the material did not originate in Pakistan or other suspect countries, and one official said that "with a certainty of 90 percent or better, this stuff's from North Korea," the article said.
This may be a good sign. It looks like we will have to take on both Iran and North Korea. Hopefully not at the same time. Selah!
More from Reuters:
The new data also involves more proof that Pyongyang reprocessed all 8,000 spent fuel rods from a nuclear facility at Yongbyon, enough to fuel about a half dozen nuclear weapons, officials told Reuters.
Experts said the new information appeared to confirm what was previously known rather than to break new ground.
The New York Times reported on Wednesday that nine months ago, international inspectors came up with the first evidence that North Korea may have provided Libya with nearly two tons of uranium hexaflouride, the material that can be fed into nuclear centrifuges and enriched into bomb fuel. Libya surrendered its huge cask of the highly toxic material to the United States when it dismantled its nuclear program last year, it said.
