Will miracles never cease, looks like the bush administration is getting soft as it nears closer and closer to the end of it’s reign.
The Bush administration announced on Saturday that it was removing North Korea from a list of state sponsors of terrorism and said the country had agreed to adhere to concessions on its nuclear program, in a bid to salvage a fragile nuclear deal that seemed on the verge of collapse. Sean McCormack, the State Department spokesman, said that North Korea had agreed to resume disabling its plutonium plant at Yongbyon, replace the seals on its nuclear equipment and allow international inspectors to return.
But almost immediately, the move brought expressions of concern from Republican lawmakers, including the presidential nominee, Senator John McCain.
