REPORT: Bush Officials Were ‘Rooting’ For North Korea to Test Nuclear Weapon
Is anyone really surprised by this, after almost 6 long years of this administration?

Think Progress » REPORT: Bush Officials Were ‘Rooting’ For North Korea to Test Nuclear Weapon:

This astonishing revelation was buried in the middle of a Washington Post story published yesterday.
Glenn Kessler reports from Moscow as he accompanies Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice:
Before North Korea announced it had detonated a nuclear device, some senior officials even said they were quietly rooting for a test, believing that would finally clarify the debate within the administration.
