The North Korean Connection

Today the administration briefs Congress on the Israeli raid on Syria, confirming what almost everyone has guessed: that this was an attack on a nuclear reactor capable of producing weapons-grade plutonium.  Evidently the Israelis videotaped inside the facility (nice intelligence work!) and confirmed the presence of North Koreans, helping to construct a reactor of the same design as the one at Yongbyon.

The surprising part is the reaction to all this:

Nuclear weapons analysts and U.S. officials predicted that CIA Director Michael V. Hayden‘s planned disclosures to Capitol Hill could complicate U.S. efforts to improve relations with North Korea as a way to stop its nuclear weapons program.

Reality!  Oh, bother.  It complicates everything.
