New North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un
U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann has released the text of a letter she wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton last week asking that North Korea be relisted as a state sponsor of terrorism.
The Minnesota Republican, a member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the letter Tuesday, highlighting what she called “provocative actions” against other countries, including the recent failed rocket launch and rumors that a nuclear test is imminent.
“Currently, the State Department has designated four countries as state sponsors of terrorism: Syria, Cuba, Sudan, and Iran, with North Korea being delisted in October 2008,” Bachmann wrote. “Since that time, it seems that North Korea has done little to earn the distinction of a country that intends to peacefully reintegrate itself into the international community.”
