WASHINGTON: North Korea agreed on Wednesday to stop nuclear tests, uranium enrichment and long-range missile launches, and to allow nuclear inspectors to visit its Yongbyon nuclear complex to verify the moratorium has been enforced.In return, the US has agreed to resume food aid shipments to the starving people of North Korea. Sounds like a wonderful deal. This was Senator John Kyl's (R-AZ) response:

“I am deeply disappointed, but not surprised, by the about-face. This is just par for the course for an administration that has a demonstrated record of misleading Congress and disregarding U.S. national security,” Kyl said.
You'll recall Kyl is the Senator that announced on the floor of the senate that 90% of Planned Parenthood's work is abortion. The truth is that abortion is only 3% of Planned Parenthoods work and when confronted with this statistic, Senator Kyl's office claimed what he said was"not intending to be a factual statement".
Senator Kyl and George Bush were both in office when North Korea developed and tested nuclear weapons. The only president that had a history of disregarding national security was George Bush, who when warned about impending attacks by Bin Laden, said: "You've covered your ass, now" and then went on vacation. President Obama killed Bin Laden, George Bush did not. Senator Kyl must have forgotten that George Bush was no longer President of the US and was talking about George Bush instead of President Obama.
