Cognitive Dissonance

I a trying very hard to reconcile the following two paragraphs, and wondering just why the author of the piece does not mention the insanity of the position taken. Groundwork: The secretary of state is in Japan, talking about nuclear proliferation.

During her plane trip, she implicitly criticized the Bush administration for abandoning the so-called 1994 Agreed Framework with North Korea, reached during President Bill Clinton's first term in the White House, which called for the North to give up its plutonium-based weapons program.

The framework collapsed when the Bush team accused Pyongyang of maintaining a separate highly enriched uranium program, about which Secretary Clinton said there was still great debate. As a result, she said, the North had restarted and accelerated its plutonium program, allowing it to build a nuclear device that it had detonated in 2006.

Maybe I am nuts, but the entire world knows that the North Koreans never stopped the weapons program:
Shortly after signing the (1994) agreement, North Korea began seeking nuclear weapons fuel through uranium enrichment.

Mrs. Clinton is lying, just like her husband (he was found in contempt of court for lying under oath), and just like President Obama.
