Bill Clinton expresses ‘regret’ over missed opportunity to ‘end’ North Korean threat

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

As President Donald Trump prepares for a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, the Commander in Chief has reminded Americans on multiple occasions that previous presidents should have dealt with the threat from the communist nation long ago.

It would appear that at least one former president may be in agreement with that assessment, as former President Bill Clinton just expressed “regret” for not having taken a chance near the end of his term to “end” the missile threat from North Korea.

Clinton let us down

That shocking admission from the former president came during a recent interview with NBC.

But, keeping in the spirit of the political left and the Clinton family, it was apparently not necessarily Clinton’s fault that an opportunity to deal with North Korea was missed — but was instead the fault of late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat.

“I had a chance at the end of my presidency — I kind of regret this now, but I would do the same thing again [if] faced with it — to end their missile program, but I would have had to go to North Korea,” Clinton said.

“But I couldn’t do that and finish the Middle East peace. And Arafat begged me not to go and then backed out on his promise,” he continued.

Pressed to elaborate on his expression of “regret,” Clinton replied, “I made the right decision. That is, if we had peace between the Palestinians and the Israelis, especially back then, it would have been better, but I regret that I didn’t end their missile program.”

Cleaning up his mess

Though Clinton declined to offer specifics as to why Arafat wouldn’t want him to deal with the North Korean issue, it is known that the North Korean regime at that time provided support and weapons to the Palestinians, and the Palestinian leader had made multiple trips of his own to Pyongyang.

Clinton nevertheless defended the deal he’d made with North Korea early on in his tenure, which he claimed had prevented the rogue regime from producing any fissile materials for their nuclear program.

As to the upcoming summit in Singapore between Trump and Kim with a central topic of denuclearization on the agenda, Clinton offered his tacit support, saying: “We should want this to succeed.”

Though he expressed caution against getting hopes up over the meeting, he nevertheless concluded that if both sides lived up to their ends of an agreement, or the agreement could be left with minimal harm if not, “then we should say the summit was a success and worth doing.”

Given the fact that Clinton is certainly no fan of Trump and rarely admits to mistakes, his expression of “regret” over a missed opportunity and support for Trump’s current opportunity is a rather welcome surprise. Now it’s President Trump’s job to clean up Clinton’s mess.
