'The Why' Talks To The Last American To Make A Deal With North Korea
Joel Wit helped negotiate the 1994 U.S.-DPRK Agreed Framework, a deal he hoped could end North Korea's nuclear ambitions before it was too late.

Joel Wit was the State Department official charged with negotiating and ultimately implementing the 1994 U.S.-DPRK Agreed Framework.
Today, he still believes it's worthwhile to negotiate with Kim Jong-un, but the stakes have changed enormously in 25 years.
