Congressman Gohmert On Nuclear Tests

There's plenty of political finger pointing going on in response to the North Korea's nuclear tests.

Democratic Senators Hillary Clinton and John Kerry both say the nuclear tests show a flaw in the Bush Administrations national security policy, but Congressman Louie Gohmert says the tests are a result of decisions made under the Cinton administration.

"President Clinton and Madeline Albright cut a deal with them that if you'll promise not to produce nuclear weapons we'll build you a nuclear power plant. Well, you can't cut deals with snakes, and that's what they did. They built a nuclear power plant at our expense, and now they've used it to make nuclear weapons," says Gohmert.

Gohmert says he hopes the UN will put North Korea 'in their place' but adds, he won't be holding his breath waiting for that to happen.
