North Korea Confirms Nuclear Test

North Korea confirmed "that it had conducted its third, long-threatened nuclear test... posing a new challenge for the Obama administration in its effort to keep the country from becoming a full-fledged nuclear power," the New York Times reports.

"The test drew a crescendo of international condemnation Tuesday, with President Obama calling it a 'highly provocative act' that demands 'swift and credible action by the international community' against North Korea. Russia, Britain, South Korea and the United Nations similarly quickly condemned the blast."

Marc Ambinder notes five things to watch for after the North Korean test.
