State of Play: North Korea Removed From Terror List

The axis of evil is down one member- Kim Jong Il, leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (aka North Korea), has issued a 60-page declaration describing its nuclear capabilities, both in power and in weapons. President George W. Bush announced that he would remove North Korea from the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism, as well as lift key trade sanctions against the country.

The New York Times reports that despite the news, the country isn’t quite revealing everything:

But, significantly, the North’s declaration was not expected to reveal details on three critical points: the nuclear bombs the North has already produced; its alleged attempts to produce nuclear arms by secretly enriching uranium, which triggered the ongoing crisis in 2002; and accusations that the North helped Syria build a nuclear plant.

Major media outlets trumpeted the news, but seemed split on whether to cover the declaration, the lifting of the sanctions or Bush taking North Korea off the terror list.
