Season 21, Episode 15 Kim's Nuclear Gamble

First Aired: April 10, 2003

“Kim's Nuclear Gamble” traces “how we got into the mess we're in with North Korea,” says producer Martin Smith, who traces the crisis over Pyongyang's plutonium back to 1994, when Kim Il Sung (the father of present North Korean leader Kim Jong Il) made similar threats, and former President Jimmy Carter (who's interviewed) brokered a deal. The hour explores policy differences toward North Korea between the Clinton and Bush administrations (and differences of opinion within the Bush administration); looks at life in North Korea; and assesses how destructive a war in Korea might be. Also interviewed: former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright; and Defense Department consultant Richard Perle.
