Dear gawd, it's like a game of "telephone".

Ready for this morning's blurb from CNN? Here you go:
U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Saturday that a high-ranking Chinese envoy, who met earlier with North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, did not say that Pyongyang would refrain from conducting further nuclear tests.

"I don't know whether Kim Jong Il said any such thing referring to whether he regretted the test or not," Rice told reporters, referring to an earlier report from South Korea's Yonhap news agency.
Can you parse that? She says that what the Chicoms told her that the North Koreans told them is different than what the ROK news guy says the Chicoms told him that the North Koreans told them.

Clear as mud? Thought so.

Sounds like the Bush Administration is trying to goad Kim into testing six or eight warheads just to prove he has 'em!

What a strategery! Not a good idea to misunderestimate Shrub!
