The U.S. is reportedly engaging in a cyber warfare campaign against North Korea’s missile program.
Three years ago, the White House instructed the Pentagon to sabotage missile tests through cyber and electronic strikes on North Korea’s missile systems, reports The New York Times. The aim of the campaign was to slow North Korea’s march towards the development of an intercontinental ballistic missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the U.S.
Shortly after the order was given, North Korea’s missiles began exploding on launch, straying from their intended flight paths, or coming apart mid-flight. Some of these failings can be attributed to North Korean incompetence; others, however, can perhaps be credited to the Pentagon’s secret anti-missile campaign.
Last year, North Korea tested its Musudan intermediate-range ballistic missile eight times, with only one success. Kim Jong-un is said to have called for an investigation last fall into whether or not the U.S. and South Korea were sabotaging the North’s efforts to develop a reliable missile program. The probe began after North Korea had two back-to-back failures in October, reports the International Business Times.Read the rest of the story HERE.
