'Strategic Failure of the First Order'

North Korea has exploded a nuclear weapon, or in the passive voice used by the media, 'conducted an underground nuclear test'.

The origins of the failure are ones anyone familiar with the last six years in this country will readily recognize: chest-thumping followed by failure followed by cover-up and denial. The same story as Iraq. Even the same story as Foley.
