New satellite imagery allegedly reveals that North Korea has taken steps to conceal a military facility likely holding nuclear weapons. The images prove that the changes were made in recent months, a move that adds to the growing sense of urgency over unclear policies set forth by the Biden administration regarding North Korea’s nuclear weapons program. The image was captured in February and analyzed by experts at the Middlebury Institute.
