Data Suggests N. Korea Conducted 2 Covert Nuclear Tests in 2010

Country May Have Experimented With a Fusion Bomb

Unearthed isotope data point to possible secret North Korean nuclear blasts and bomb boosting efforts aimed at developing nuclear warheads for ICBMs. Click here for the story.

If the two tests did take place in 2010, Foreign Confidential™ analysts say, the detonations were observed by Iranian delegations that included military and intelligence officers and nuclear scientists and engineers. Iranians were in attendance for North Korea's two previous nuclear tests, in 2006 and 2009.

Foreign Confidential™ Predictions

Foreign Confidential™ (formerly China Confidential) is the only media outlet that accurately predicted both North Korean nuclear tests, including predicting the exact dates on which the explosions would occur.

In July of 2009, two months after the North's last known nuclear test, Foreign Confidential™ wrote that Pyongyang was planning additional tests.

On April 23, 2010, Foreign Confidential™ wrote that the North would probably stage its third nuclear test before the end of May of that year.

"New North Korean nuclear tests are increasingly likely," Foreign Confidential repeated on May 23, 2010.

About three months later, North Korea's ambassador to Cuba warned the United States that his country would use its nuclear arsenal to launch a "holy war" against the U.S. and South Korea if either country attacked the North.
