I hope the Bush administration (which is acting more like an Obama administration every day) knows something the rest of us don't, because frankly, I wouldn't trust the DPRK any further than I personally could throw one of their ballistic missiles.
They have consistently failed to perform on their numerous promises with regard to halting and/or verification of their nuclear program, and there seems to be no reason why the United States should think they will change their modus operandi. In short, I think this is one of the most dumb-ass things the Bush administration has done.
It seems that the American foreign policy establishment has developed a form of battered wife syndrome with respect to the DPRK--no matter what they do, we'll always welcome them back, while they go on cheating and carrying on with the floozy down the block.
Somehow I don't think the story will end any better than most battered wife tales.
