Aide: Obama seeks to starve NKorean leader of attention

WASHINGTON (AP) — North Korean leader Kim Jong Un triggered a diplomatic earthquake with his nation’s latest nuclear test a week ago. But it didn’t register when President Barack Obama delivered his State of the Union speech. Nor did it get a mention when top U.S. diplomat John Kerry delivered a globe-spanning foreign policy speech on Wednesday.

And here’s why: The Obama administration doesn’t want to give the unpredictable Kim the satisfaction.

Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes says, “if there’s one thing I know about the leader of North Korea, it’s that he likes attention” who would probably like nothing more than having the president spend time talking about him in the annual address to Congress.

Kim has been using the Jan. 6 underground explosion as a propaganda victory at home.
