Intelligence Report: North Korea Has Likely Inaccurate Long-Range Missile Capability
As North Korea continues to threaten an attack on the United States, a Defense Intelligence Agency report indicates that the Hermit Kingdom probably has nuclear warheads deliverable by ballistic missiles. According to the document, those weapons may have the capability to reach the United States.

From the report, which was distributed to senior, “DIA assesses with moderate confidence the North currently has nuclear weapons capable of delivery by ballistic missiles however the reliability will be low.”
The DIA admonition that “reliability will be low” is a reference to North Korea’s previous failed attempts to produce and launch projectiles that were accurate.
Meanwhile, South Korean intelligence officials say that the North is poised to launch up to five missiles from its eastern coast as a part of a non-threatening military drill. The intelligence officials do not believe that the launches pose any threat to South Korea, Japan or the United States and are part of a holiday to celebrate the birthday of the late Kim il Sung.
“There is no threat,” said Xu Guangyu, a senior military analyst in Beijing. “The grandson is using the missiles to salute his grandfather and celebrate his power.’’
