David Sanger, Confidante of the Washington High and Mighty, Is Sure the Deal Includes Nuclear Weapons

To quote: "Over the next year, under the pact, the North must not only disable its nuclear reactors and reprocessing facilities, it must lead inspectors to its weapons and a suspected second nuclear weapons program. And to get to the next phase of the agreement, the one that gives “disarmament” meaning, North Korea will have to be persuaded to give away the country’s crown jewels: the weapons that make the world pay attention to it."

I hope he's right. But is he sure? He doesn't cite any sources for this reading. And there's no assurance North Korea formally admit to an enrichment program. I'd like to hear from the North Koreans on this.
