Panetta: North Korea 'serious threat to the United States'

Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, in remarks Tuesday morning to Pentagon workers, said the US is going to have to continue to deal with rogue states like North Korea.


"We just saw what North Korea has done in these last few weeks, a missile test and now a nuclear test," he said. "They represent a serious threat to the United States of America, and we've got to be prepared to deal with that." (AP)
