No nukes?

The week's news at a glance.

Pyongyang, North Korea

The Bush administration has little basis for its claim that North Korea already has one or two nuclear bombs, the Los Angeles Times reported this week. More than 30 current and former intelligence officials and diplomats told the newspaper that the administration’s claim is based solely on intercepted phone conversations and other dubious intelligence. The analysts agree that dictator Kim Jong-il is pursuing nuclear capability, but say there’s no real evidence that he’s succeeded. “We don’t know what they’re doing,” said one former envoy to North Korea.
