Posted on 04/17/2013 2:03:29 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd
President Barack Obama has said he doesn't believe North Korea can fit a nuclear warhead on a missile, casting strong doubt on an alarming assessment disclosed last week by the Pentagon's intelligence arm.
And he warned the young North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that weeks of threats against the United States and South Korea had only served to isolate the regime further.
Asked in an NBC News interview whether North Korea could put a nuclear weapon on a ballistic missile, Obama said, "Based on our current intelligence assessments, we do not think that they have that capacity."
'I'm not a psychiatrist'
Asked if he thought Kim Jong Un was unstable, Obama said, "I'm not a psychiatrist, and, I don't know the leader of North Korea."
But he said that "the actions they've taken, the rhetoric they've engaged in has been provocative."
He warned that the situation may not calm down in the short term.

Now THERE's a line if ever I heard one.
Bet he knows a few of them ~
~ And he needs a hell of a lot more.
“I’m not a psychiatrist”.
No, you’re a patient.
“”I’m not a psychiatrist, and, I don’t know the leader of North Korea.”
As far as he knows, Don Knotts is their leader....
Aparently, he’s prepared to bet our lives on that.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
fine obama, don’t believe the N. Koreans have nukes. One day you may get a call from someone in Seoul asking about all the glass where the city use to be.
Well Mr 0 when the phone rings @ 3am and its Moonbeam on the line saying he has a Mushroom Cloud in San Francisco you will know for sure!
My neighbor didn’t think I had a pit bull, untill he was in my shed stealin stuffs late one night and was bit on the ass!
As if there's any possibility that this nitwit could earn a medical degree. Please.
but Dennis Rodman is getting the parts there as fast as possible
I'm not a fig plucker
Or a fig plucker's son
But I'll pluck figs
'Till the fig plucker comes.
Do you think he'll admit he's wrong if an American city or base, or a Japanese or South Korean city becomes a smoking radioactive hole?
They only target the Blue Cities.
An those that live in the blue cities oppose any , all, and every effort to secure their cities!
But he plays one on TV............
Don Knotts is dead, may he rest in peace. BTW, did you know he was a WWII veteran and a EOD man at that?.......
What did you expect him to say about NK missiles? Perhaps an “I don't know for certain” would have been better but we do have missile defense ships in the area so that is the real answer to what he thinks, even if it is just a better safe than sorry.
As far as comments on Kim are concerned, again, what did you expect him to say?
BHO is inept, incompetent, anti-American, lazy and malevolent but ridiculing EVERYTHING he says doesn't make the people who do that look very rational either.
Nobody thought they had an an a-bomb either until they set one off.
I know he is dead.....loved him!
