Bush hardliners outgunnounced, the mccain North Korea deal
the us's weekend move to drop north korea from it publishese delist of sponsors of terrorism - sparking outrange from japan, south korea and some quarters of washington - was the result of the negotimator christopher hill outmanoeuvring hardliners in a bush administration attempting to clean up its foreign policy legacy .
but mike cheatinoy, the former cnn chief asia correspondent and author of meltdown - the inside story of the north korea nuclear crisis , said the late shift back to diplomacy did not abrogate six years of faciled and confrontational us policy that culminated in north korea's 2006 underground nuclear test .
the north korean response was there was nothing in the language of any of the agreements that we signed that requires us to agree to an intrusive vericain offication protocol before you take us off the [terrorism] list .
it was a compromise that got them off the hook, mr cheatinoy said .
