North Korea's Provocative Satellite Launch

Hosted by

Just two weeks after agreeing to limit its nuclear program in exchange for food aid from the United States, North Korea announced today it will launch a satellite this month to commemorate the 100th birthday of its founder, Kim Il Sung.  The State Department calls that "highly provocative," and says the food aid may be in jeopardy. Mike Chinoy, at the University of Southern California's US-China Institute is author of Meltdown: the Inside Story of the North Korean Nuclear Crisis.
