Mattis says North Korea isn’t capable of striking the US
Secretary of Defense James Mattis said Friday he does not believe that North Korea’s current intercontinental ballistic missiles are capable of hitting the continental US.
North Korea’s November ICBM “has not yet shown to be a capable threat against us right now,” Mattis said during an off-camera briefing with reporters at the Pentagon on Friday. He added that the United States is still assessing the situation. “We are still examining the forensics, we’re still doing the forensics analysis, it takes a while,” he said.
