"This is the February 7, 2017 hearing on 'Countering the North Korean Threat: New Steps in U.S. Policy' held before the House of Representatives Committee on Foreign Affairs. From the statement of Chairman Edward Royce: 'At this point it's clear that very, very soon North Korea is going to be able to target all 50 States in the United States, as well as target our allies. At the same time, it's the rapid speed of this advance and the fact also that North Korea has this history of proliferating. They get their ICBM technology or they get their ability to create a nuclear bomb and they sell that, and this is another concern that we have, because this is really a ''game changer'' to our national security. [...] So our panel this morning has important insights on Kim Jong Un's goals, on vulnerabilities that we can exploit, and on how the President can better use the authorities that Congress has given him through the legislation that we passed here in the committee.' Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Victor Cha, Sue Mi Terry, Anthony Ruggiero, and Robert L. Gallucci."
