“Secrecy is the freedom tyrants dream of.” - Bill Moyers

Few places on earth remain as mysterious and forbidding as North Korea. Even for the best trained spies, the truth about North Korean capabilities and intentions often remains elusive. More troubling, few countries pose as great a threat to American interests as North Korea, the center of a vast enterprise of nuclear proliferation and terrorism. The regime stockpiles nuclear weapons material and shares nuclear technology with other rogue actors. Pyongyang brazenly threatens its neighbors, while Kim Jong-un—the 31-year-old dictator and son of the late Kim Jong-il—purges challengers to his authority and publicly executes those who seek access to greater freedoms. What do we know about the North Korean threat? What would it take to lift the shroud of secrecy that looms over the Hermit Kingdom? Join Bruce Klingner, former CIA deputy division chief for Korea; Fred Fleitz, former CIA analyst and expert in WMD proliferation; and Bruce Bechtol, Senior Intelligence Analyst at the Defense Intelligence Agency and author of numerous papers and books on North Korea including The Last Days of Kim Jong-il: The North Korean Threat in a Changing Era, to answer these and other questions.

Cosponsored by the Korea Economic Institute of America
