[[File:ClintonTIME9801.jpg|thumb|190px|Clinton gave low-priority to foreign policy issues and anything that would take the focus off his domestic agenda.]]
From 1985 to 1992, N. Korea "bought time" for its nuclear weapons program by entering into a series of agreements under which it promised to "deweaponizede-weaponize" its reactors and halt further production of plutonium. Clinton wished top wanted to remove the possibility of a crisis before his 1996 re-election bid. By Clinton's second, however, N. North Korea had violated the terms of most of the non-proliferation agreements , and simply abandoned compliance with the rest.
In 1994 Clinton signed an agreement on paper with [[Kim Il-sung]] accepting a vague promise that the North Korea would temporarily halt its work on a nuclear weapon. The "agreement" was known as the "Agreed Framework."<ref>http://usgovinfo.about.com/library/weekly/aankorea.htm</ref> The agreement gave North Korea food and oil. In addition to oil, the United States and others rendered free, unconditional food aid while not demanding any real reform of its inefficient, [[Stalin]]ist agricultural system. <ref>http://www.fas.org/spp/starwars/crs/91-141.htm</ref>

By 2003, the North Korean regime amassed enough time and resources to complete build and test a nuclear device.
