Gareth Porter returns to the Scott Horton Show to talk about North Korea’s nuclear program and the chances for denuclearization. One roadblock to denuclearization, he explains, is that the U.S. doesn’t know precisely how many nuclear weapons the North Koreans have, nor where they keep them, so it would be impossible to verify with any certainty that all the weapons were destroyed. Another roadblock is that John Bolton seems dead set on stopping a peace deal, going so far as to leak details of a DIA report to the press, perhaps in an attempt to turn the media against President Trump’s meeting with Kim.
