“I do agree in principal with the assessment that the North Koreans are moving quickly to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile capability,” Gen. Paul Selva told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday. “I, however, am not saying that the test on the Fourth of July demonstrates that they have the capacity to strike the United States with any degree of accuracy or reasonable confidence of success. What the experts tell me is that North Koreans have yet to demonstrate the capacity to do the guidance and control that would be required.” Pressed by Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) on the issue of range, Selva added: “Yes, sir, on range, they clearly have the capability.”
