According to NBC News, the intelligence released by The Washington Post on Tuesday stating that the Defense Intelligence Agency of the Pentagon believes North Korea has successfully miniaturized a nuclear weapon to place on top of a ballistic missile has been confirmed by the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
NBC News reports:
What has yet to be learned is what confidence level various agencies ascribe to the analysis — low, medium or high. U.S. officials have also been pushing back on the idea that they were surprised by the development, saying that it had been expected for some time. But outside experts, including Juan Zarate, a former top Treasury official and NBC News contributor, have said that it appears intelligence officials did not anticipate the speed of North Korea's advances.
The Post quoted the Defense Intelligence Agency stating, “The IC [intelligence community] assesses North Korea has produced nuclear weapons for ballistic missile delivery, to include delivery by ICBM-class missiles.”
That assessment was corroborated by the Japanese Ministry of Defense.
