Bush funded the North Korea WMD program

Hat tip: Canadian Cynic

So it seems that the US under George W. Bush, decided to give North Korea the funding to carry out thier nuclear program:

The US Government has announced that it will release $95m to North Korea as part of an agreement to replace the Stalinist country's own nuclear programme, which the US suspected was being misused.

But don't worry, I'm sure safeguards were in place:

In releasing the funding, President George W Bush waived the requirement that North Korea allow inspectors to ensure it has not hidden away any weapons-grade plutonium from the original reactors.

Or, you know, not.
