Obama Staffer Admits That Obama Made No Progress on the North Korean Nuclear Program

Tommy Vietor said that the previous president would have changed course if we know what we do now.

Tommy Vietor, the National Security Council Spokesman under President Obama, said on Friday that Obama had not accomplished what was needed on North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs.

“You can’t look at the situation and say, ‘Yeah, he would have stayed the course,” Vietor said. “Because we didn’t achieve what we needed to achieve which was to stop their nuclear program.”

“We just never got to a place where any progress was made,” he then admitted.

Vietor also inferred that the sanctions that the Obama administration slapped on Pyongyang did not do anything to deter the Kim regime.
