North Korea-Syria nuclear ties: déjà vu all over again?

Via SyriaComment from FP here
Joseph Cirincione, senior fellow and director for nuclear policy at the Center for American Progress, author of "Bomb Scare: The History and Future of Nuclear Weapons", weighs in. Here's his take:

"...This story is nonsense. The Washington Post story should have been headlined "White House Officials Try to Push North Korea-Syria Connection." This is a political story, not a threat story. The mainstream media seems to have learned nothing from the run-up to war in Iraq. It is a sad commentary on how selective leaks from administration officials who have repeatedly misled the press are still treated as if they were absolute truth..."
