KEANE: "What’s truly happening here is this irrational, unpredictable leader, as we accurately described him, is rushing towards a ballistic missile capability. You talk about strategic patience, he has strategic impatience. That is what has got our attention because he wants to weaponize those ballistic missiles that could range our U.S. bases and our allies, and as he has advertised on more than one occasion, actually developed an intercontinental ballistic missile which could range the United States itself. The fact is that he is developing this missile technology at a very accelerated pace and that has got our attention coupled with the rhetoric that he would actually use it. So, yes, this administration has faced its full square for what it really is. One of my problems with President Obama, for eight years, he had a tendency to minimize the actual threat and exaggerate our performance against the threats in the world. And I think they purposely minimized this North Korean threat."
