Former CIA Official: N. Korea Could be Big Threat to US

A former Central Intelligence Agency official has warned that the next U.S. president should not underestimate North Korea’s nuclear power.

Jami Miscik, former CIA deputy director, relayed the warning on Tuesday during an interview at the Fortune Most Powerful Women Summit held in California hosted by U.S. magazine Fortune.

Miscik said that the president-elect is going to encounter problems with North Korea that none of his or her predecessors have faced, adding that the North is becoming not just a nuclear power, but a power that is able to deliver a nuclear missile.

The former CIA official said that the North’s intermediate-range Musadan missile could probably hit Guam, but the next larger rocket would probably be able to hit the U.S. mainland.

She suggested that working “very closely and privately with China to understand the dimensions of this problem” would be the most beneficial to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue.
