Read the updated report here. It validates years of Foreign Confidential™ reporting on nuclear-armed North Korea and its partnership in proliferation with nuclear-arming Iran.
On August 26, 2010, for example, Foreign Confidential™ reported:
Analysts believe Iran may already have several radiological--so-called dirty--bombs. Inspired, perhaps, by a plot by Nazi Germany to attack New York with a radioactive sand bomb, Iran has sought to acquire dirty bombs ahead of full-blown nuclear bombs and warheads (to place atop Iranian missiles and ICBMs).
More recently, Foreign Confidential™ noted on January 9 that "Iran has nuclear materials, money, missiles and warheads, scientific and technical expertise, conventional explosives, and political will and determination, etc. So why shouldn't we assume that Iran, while working on nuclear weapons, has already produced an arsenal of advanced radiological dirty bombs--and various means of delivering them?"
That comment followed a Jan. 3 assertion that Iran probably has "one or more dirty bombs."
Foreign Confidential™ Predictions
Foreign Confidential™ (formerly China Confidential) is the only media outlet that accurately predicted both North Korean nuclear tests, including the actual 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.
