David Sanger: Given the Progress Made by North Korea, Hitting L.A. ‘May Not Be All that Far Away’

‘It’s, as you indicated, that it went to such incredible height, about 1,700 miles in just a very sharp parabola, and if you flatten that out, you’d get to something that could reach Alaska’

EXCERPT:

SANGER: "This is exactly the pace we thought they’d be on, Brooke, but it’s just moving faster than I think most American intelligence officials suspected that it would. The fact that it landed only 500 miles or so from where it took off is not the meaningful statistic here. It’s, as you indicated, that it went to such incredible height, about 1,700 miles in just a very sharp parabola. And if you flatten that out, you’d get to something that could reach Alaska. Couldn’t reach Hawaii, couldn’t reach Los Angeles, but clearly, given the kind of progress they’ve made, that day may not be all that far away.”
