The two faces of Rumsfeld

2000: director of a company which wins $200m contract
to sell nuclear reactors to North Korea
2002: declares North Korea a terrorist state, part of
the axis of evil and a target for regime change

Donald Rumsfeld, the US defence secretary, sat on the
board of a company which three years ago sold two
light water nuclear reactors to North Korea - a
country he now regards as part of the "axis of evil"
and which has been targeted for regime change by
Washington because of its efforts to build nuclear
weapons.

Mr Rumsfeld was a non-executive director of ABB, a
European engineering giant based in Zurich, when it
won a $200m (£125m) contract to provide the design and
key components for the reactors. The current defence
secretary sat on the board from 1990 to 2001, earning
$190,000 a year. He left to join the Bush
administration.
