Editor’s Note: Anderson Cooper will report the latest developments on North Korea's threats and the United States' response tonight on AC360° at 8 and 10 p.m. ET. He'll be joined by former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman and CNN's Christiane Amanpour.
With North Korea expected to soon test more missiles, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel warned Wednesday the hermit nation is "skating very close to a dangerous line." Intelligence suggests North Korea could be planning “multiple missile launches” in the coming days, according to Pentagon officials. Here’s the AC360° 411 on North Korea:
It is surprising to me that no one is talking about or exploring the Pakistan's assistance to the North Korea Nuclear Bomb development. It has been common knowledge for many years that North Korea gave missiles and missile tech to Pakistan and Pakistan has reciprocated by Nuclear technology. US has in fact turned a blind eye to all this for many years.
I find myself concerned when declassified but should be classified documents find there way into being disclosed. North Korea's now disclosed capabilities for a nuclear warhead, reminds me of the WMD that was disclosed to begin the Iraq war. I am greatly concern about the findings of any intelligence agencies findings when they are not corroborated by other intelligence agencies.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines to tell stories from many points of view, so you can make up your own mind about the news. Tune in weeknights at 8 and 10 ET on CNN.
