Defense, CIA both believe miniature warheads, missiles to deliver them, exist
WASHINGTON – The Obama administration is denying that North Korea has developed miniaturized nuclear warheads and missiles to deliver them, even though the Defense Intelligence Agency and the Central Intelligence Agency have assessed that they exist, charges an adviser to Congress on national security.
“President Obama himself began this big lie amidst the 2013 nuclear crisis when North Korea was threatening to make nuclear missile strikes against the U.S. and its allies,” said Peter Vincent Pry, executive director of the privately funded Task Force on National and Homeland Security for the Congressional Caucus on EMP.

Pry, who also directs the United States Nuclear Strategy Forum, an advisory body to Congress on policies to counter weapons of mass destruction, called for urgent hearings by the House and Senate Armed Services Committees.
He believes the White House position on the communist regime’s nuclear capabilities is related to the administration’s aim to radically reduce the U.S. military’s nuclear and conventional forces.
Pry told WND the DIA and CIA have both assessed that North Korea does have nuclear missiles, but Obama officials such as Director of National Intelligence James Clapper “have suppressed this intelligence.”
“Now, Obama’s DOD is trying to silence South Korea’s warning that the North has nuclear missiles,” he said.
“This is one of the most egregious and dangerous examples of politicization of intelligence that I have ever seen.”
Pry said, like President Bill Clinton before him, Obama is “trying to escape responsibility for the fact that the North Korean nuclear threat has gotten much worse on his watch and wants to continue unilateral U.S. nuclear disarmament toward ‘Global Zero’ at a time when the U.S. nuclear deterrent matters more than ever.”
Pry has served on the staffs of the CIA, the House Armed Services Committee, the EMP Commission, the Strategic Posture Commission and the Commission on the New Strategic Posture of the U.S.
Obama’s denial won’t change the facts: America’s electrical grid is vulnerable to an EMP attack, and North Korea is taking the steps necessary to make that attack a reality. Read “A Nation Forsaken: EMP: The Escalating Threat of an American Catastrophe” (Autographed)
At odds with South Korean assessment
He cites recent reports from the South Korean government that the U.S. Defense Department had stated it did not have specific evidence to prove North Korea had attained the technology needed to miniaturize a nuclear warhead.
