Wapo finally produces a decent, objective article. (See? I can admit when Wapo reports actual news instead of making a political statement)
U.S. Preliminary testing shows radioactive gas.
The betting is that this was an attempt at a nuclear test that failed," the official said Friday. "We don't think they were trying to fake a nuclear test, but it may have been a nuclear fizzle." The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the information.
The test found a type of radioactive gas that would be present after a nuclear detonation, the official said. It is one of a number of analyses conducted this week, which have not provided clarity about what North Korea detonated on Monday.
I will repeat myself, even if the test was a dud, a failure, I have no doubt that North Korea will learn from it's mistakes and try again. No doubt whatsoever.
Right Truth is also trying to keep up with the conflicting reports.10/14/06- Also writing about this: American Mind, Midtopia, Decision `08, American Future, Daily Pundit.
