Walter C. Clemens

University Press of Kentucky

After taking office in 2001, President George W. Bush did not seek an arms control accord or broader accommodation with North Korea. In this chapter, Clemens details the Bush administrations lack of interest in pursuing an arms control accord. Clemens discusses a confrontation that led to termination of a deal that halted the North’s plutonium production for eight years, permitting North Korea to build a nuclear arsenal. Clemens concludes the chapter by noting that the demise of the Agreed Framework marked a major failure of U.S. policy during the Bush administration.
