N. Korea Missile Footage Isn't Real, U.S. Admiral Says

Photos showing a North Korean missile launched from a submarine were manipulated by state propagandists, a top U.S. military official said on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the North claimed it has the ability to miniaturize nuclear weapons, a key step toward building nuclear missiles. "They have not gotten as far as their clever video editors and spinmeisters would have us believe," said U.S. Admiral James Winnefeld, who is vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. German aerospace engineers Markus Schiller and Robert Schmucker of Schmucker Technologie also said photos of the launch were "strongly modified," including reflections of the missile exhaust flame in the water which did not line up with the missile itself.
