Surprises galore for Hecker

-A A +A
By John Severance

Siegfried Hecker, the former Los Alamos National Laboratory Director (1986-1997) and now the head for the Center for International Security and Cooperation at Stanford, made his sixth visit to rogue North Korea in November.
And last week at the Church of Latter Day Saints in Los Alamos, Hecker made a presentation where he had a lot of answers but just as many questions still linger in regard to North Korea’s nuclear capabilities.
In November, Hecker along with his Stanford colleagues John Lewis and Robert Carlin, flew to Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea.
Right before Hecker’s trip, North Korea bombed a South Korean island near the border and four were killed. It was the first attack on a civilian area since the Korean War. And eight months earlier, a North Korean torpedo allegedly sank a South Korean ship, killing 46. But the North Koreans denied responsibility.
With tensions rising, Hecker was not sure what to expect during his trip.
 “Sometimes they show you stuff, sometimes they don’t,”
Hecker said.
This was one of the times where the North Koreans showed the U.S. delegation a lot as the Americans were taken to the Yongbyon Nuclear Complex.
