U.S. Explores Delicate Options in Korean Response


Our problem right now is, we don't have an interlocutor. It's very unclear what's going on in North Korea. Clearly, they have a succession crisis. They have an army that's basically a law unto itself, that's probably not taking civilian direction at this point. So, I think we have problems finding someone over there to talk to.

And, in the meantime, I think it is very important that we work very closely with the South Koreans. I don't think we want to be in a position of somehow egging them on, nor do we want to be seen as -- as pulling them back. I think what we want to be doing is in very, very serious consultations. And I think President Obama is doing just that with President Lee Myung-Bak.

Nothing here is as it appears.
