Report: U.S. overdoes North Korean threat

WASHINGTON, Dec. 10 (UPI) -- A pacifist think tank says Washington is exaggerating its claims about North Korea's weapons of mass destruction.

The Center for International Policy, which seeks to promote "a U.S. policy based on international cooperation, demilitarization and respect for basic human rights," says the exaggeration resembles distortions of Iraq's purported weapons of mass destruction, the Financial Times reported.

"Although it is now widely recognized that the Bush administration misrepresented and distorted the intelligence data it used to justify the invasion of Iraq, most observers have accepted at face value the assessments the administration has used to reverse the previously established U.S. policy towards North Korea," Selig Harrison, who run's the think tank's Asia program, wrote in an article to be published in Foreign Affairs next month.
