INS Director in news on North Korea

North Korea (CIA World Factbook)

INS Director and University of Tennessee Governor’s Chair Professor Howard Hall was quoted in a recent article in the Knoxville News-Sentinel on the rising tensions around North Korea.

“I think there is no credible threat that North Korea can pose to the U.S. homelands,” Hall said. “I don’t think there’s anything that they have in their arsenal that is a credible threat. But they certainly can pose a threat to our interests in the Asian region.”

Hall’s remarks were echoed by South Korean students attending the University as well.
