The United States and its South Korean ally have been trying to acquire human intelligence about North Korea for decades.
The Army denies a story about the use of Special Forces in North Korea. But a great deal lies behind this slip of the lip.

Washington should modulate its response to North Korea's failed rocket launch to avoid inciting another provocative action.

Every time a new administration takes office in Washington, it behaves like an amnesiac toward North Korea.
