North Korea gives unprecedented access to western journalists for "satellite" launch

North Korea has granted “unprecedented access to western journalists to show the “satellite launch” which the US fears could be a test of a capability to lob a nuclear warhead toward Alaska or even the US Pacific northwest.  (George Tenet of the CIA had said as much in 2002).

Richard Engel of NBC News gives a “tour” of North Korea, showing the empty streets of the capital, and the sparse, barren, impoverished countryside while he rides on a government VIP train.  It seems like a voyage to another planet.
