Don’t Forget: Rummy Dealt Nukes To North Korea in ’94

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on October 9th, 2006 9:06 am by HL

This flashback is from that bastion of left wing anarchy, Fortune Magazine. and came from What Really Happened.com

Rummy’s North Korea Connection What did Donald Rumsfeld know about ABB’s deal to build nuclear reactors there? And why won’t he talk about it?

Excerpt:
Rumsfels has been involved in all kinds of dirty deals(FORTUNE Magazine) – Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld rarely keeps his opinions to himself. He tends not to compromise with his enemies. And he clearly disdains the communist regime in North Korea. So it’s surprising that there is no clear public record of his views on the controversial 1994 deal in which the U.S. agreed to provide North Korea with two light-water nuclear reactors in exchange for Pyongyang ending its nuclear weapons program. What’s even more surprising about Rumsfeld’s silence is that he sat on the board of the company that won a $200 million contract to provide the design and key components for the reactors.

The company is Zurich-based engineering giant ABB, which signed the contract in early 2000, well before Rumsfeld gave up his board seat and joined the Bush administration.

Bush and his buddies prove many times over how much worse they were then Richard Nixon, to bad they didn’t listen to what Nixon had to say about Rummy back in the 70’s

RUMSFELD WATCH: It’s Time for Him to Go

Washington Post
Excerpt:
Before he appointed Donald H. Rumsfeld as secretary of defense, President Bush would have done well to listen to the tape of an old telephone conversation between Rumsfeld and President Richard M. Nixon. It was March 1971, and Nixon was offering career advice to Rumsfeld, then head of Nixon’s Office of Economic Opportunity:

“You should be thinking of what you should do in the future,” he told the 39-year-old Rumsfeld….
Perhaps Nixon understood something about Rumsfeld that eludes Bush.

H.L.s Take:
It was Time for Rummy to go 35 years ago

    Did you say 1994?? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Gotcha. It dont make a damn what board Rummy was on. It damn sure matters what administration approved that deal. Gotcha!!!!!

    Lets say it together class. Had there been no nuclear reactor deal approved by CLINTON North Korea would not have tested a nuke yesterday. Clinton gave them nukes. The democrats gave North Korea everything they needed. H.L. you voted for Clinton? I hold you and people that think like you responsible for enableing the pussy and cheif to give those reactors up. You should have know better than to post on this subject. For you knew I would slam you on it. There is no argument……unless we can save money on missile defense. TOM would have to be able to SUCK them down out of the sky. TOM, are you ready to step up? The country needs you brother? National Missile defense in the form of TOM’S lipps…………

    ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

    You got to be kidding me. Rummy’s guilty of this. Try again HL Clinton couldn’t get N. Korea to agree to crap so he sent Mr. peanut head ole Jimmy Carter and he could get crap done. Ole peanut head couldn’t find his butt with a map and both hands. So lets see who didn’t do anything about this?????? CLINTON and here’s your link to show he didn’t do a thing but talk.

    But than I probibly only read the parts that I wanted to. Just like you.
    Oh yeah Thank You Clinton and the Dem’s for this.

    Hey Buck you noticed that no one other than you and me have left comments

  4. Buck Says:

    It is hard to argue with the facts. The hard facts. The hard national security facts. Sometime the facts stand for themselves. A strike is a strike. A fumble is a fumble. Nuclear weapons in North Korean hands has democrats, Bill Clinton, Bill Richardson, Sandy Berger, and Madam Idiot wicked witch Albright written ALL over it! So Bill, you cant argue with the facts! That is the reason no comments have been made! Buck out!!

    Obviously none of you read the story. Can you get through the last 2 paragraphs? Here they are.

    In his final days in office, Clinton had been preparing a bold deal in which North Korea would give up its missile and nuclear programs in return for aid and normalized relations. But President Bush was skeptical of Pyongyang’s intentions and called for a policy review in March 2001. Two months later the DOE, after consulting with Rumsfeld’s Pentagon, renewed the authorization to send nuclear technology to North Korea. Groundbreaking ceremonies attended by Westinghouse and North Korean officials were held Sept. 14, 2001–three days after the worst terror attack on U.S. soil.

    The Bush administration still hasn’t abandoned the project. Representative Edward Markey and other Congressmen have been sending letters to Bush and Rumsfeld, asking them to pull the plug on the reactors, which Markey calls “nuclear bomb factories.” Nevertheless, a concrete-pouring ceremony was held last August, and Westinghouse sponsored a training course for the North Koreans that concluded in October–shortly before Pyongyang confessed to having a secret uranium program, kicked inspectors out, and said it would start making plutonium. The Bush administration has suspended further transfers of nuclear technology, but in January it authorized $3.5 million to keep the project going.

    Sooner or later, the outspoken Secretary of Defense will have to explain his silence.
    end of passage…
    The reason that we are having with problems with North Korea and Nukes is because Bush and Rumsfeld wanted them to have them.

    I believe they have made more use of the uranium from the lightwater reactors they were given by Clinton in the 90s’. The nukes they have now are no doubt uranium bombs. Small yeild warheads.
