Barbara Starr on declassified intel: "The DIA is trying to figure out how they could have screwed up so bad"

Amidst Thursday's revelation of mistakenly declassified intel regarding North Korea's ability to launch a nuclear weapon, "Piers Morgan Live" invited a handful of analysts and experts to lend their unique insight and perspective into exactly how such a situation might have occurred.

"Bizarre, to say the least. Only the Pentagon some days can bring you this kind of thing," quipped Barbara Starr, CNN's Pentagon correspondent. "At the end of the day, what it turns out is somehow, which nobody can explain, this very critical piece of information was not marked classified ... The DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency] tonight is trying to figure out how they could have screwed up so bad."

Bill Richardson, meanwhile, questioned the accuracy of the released information:

"I study this issue extensively and I'm not sure that information is correct. The problem is nobody knows because we don't have any hard intelligence there," said the former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. "What is troublesome is this, Piers, that it seems that the new North Korean leader – Kim Jong-un – is playing to different audiences now. His main audience is the North Korean military, which really runs the country which has the most power. I think he's trying to strengthen himself with them. And secondly, he's sending a message to the international community that North Korea's a major nuclear power, and you have to deal with us."

Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, as Starr and Richardson share further insight into Thursday's news which lends credence to the potential for an international incident.

    Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any methods to stop hackers?
