Bush administration scrubs transcript on North Korea.

Last week, Jay Lefkowitz, President Bush’s special envoy on North Korean human rights, told AEI that North Korea will probably still have nuclear weapons when the next president takes office. Yesterday, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice “sharply rebuked” Lefkowitz for undermining the administration’s claims of success in the six-party talks. The official transcript of his comments on the State Department’s website has also disappeared, although they can still be found at AEI’s site here.
