Pakistani nuclear engineering nuclear scientist Abdul Qadeer Khan publicly admits illegally transferring nuclear secrets to Iran, Libya and North Korea. Following a written apology from Khan, President Pervez Musharraf issues a formal pardon. 2003 invasion of Iraq: Responding to criticism that pre-war intelligence gathering was faulty, CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) director George Tenet states that analysts had never presented Saddam Hussein's Iraq as an "imminent threat" in the years immediately preceding the coalition invasion. Tenet states that an overall "objective assessment" for policymakers of a "''brutal dictator who was continuing his efforts to deceive and build programs''" that might "''surprise''" and "threaten" US interests was outlined in the 2002 National Intelligence Estimate.

In the past several years, SPS students have (in simulation) run congressional campaigns, negotiated their way through a dangerous crisis with North Korea, taken steps to contain a flu pandemic sweeping the nation, and argued and decided Supreme Court cases on First Amendment and national security issues. In the "real" world, the SPS students have, among other things, visited the White House to talk with the White House Chief of Staff, had lunch with the Governor of Maryland, hosted a formal dinner for Ambassadors from around the world, attended screenings of "Meet the Press" and talked with host David Gregory (David Gregory (journalist)), met with members of the U.S. Supreme Court, and chatted about fiscal policy with the Chairman of the Federal Reserve. During the Cold War, the Soviet Union shared the design and manufacturing details with its allies, and as a result, many variants of the SKS exist. Some variants use a 30-round AK-47 style magazine (Chinese Type 63 (Type 63 assault rifle)), gas port controls, flip-up night sights, and prominent, muzzle-mounted grenade launchers (Yugoslav M59 66, possibly North Korean Type 63). In total, SKS rifles were manufactured by the Soviet Union, China (People's Republic of China), Yugoslavia, Albania (Socialist People's Republic of Albania), North Korea, Vietnam (North Vietnam), and East Germany (Kar. S) with limited pilot production (Model 56) in Romania (Socialist Republic of Romania) and Poland (People's Republic of Poland) (Wz49). Physically, all are very similar, although the NATO-specification 22 mm grenade launcher of the Yugoslav version, and the more encompassing stock of the Albanian version are visually distinctive. Early versions of Chinese Type 56s (produced 1965–71) used a spike bayonet, whereas the majority use a vertically aligned blade. Many smaller parts, most notably the sights and charging handles, were unique to different national production runs. A small quantity of SKS carbines manufactured in 1955–56 were produced in China with Russian parts, presumably as part of a technology sharing arrangement. Many Yugoslav M59 66 series rifles were exported to Uruguay and Mozambique Commons:Category:North Korea WikiPedia:North Korea Dmoz:Regional Asia North Korea
