The US bank to be used has been identified.

Wachovia Corp. said yesterday that it is considering a request from the State Department to transfer tainted money tied to North Korea from an overseas bank blacklisted earlier this year by the Treasury Department.

Needless to say, UST is doing nothing to help.

Who is responsible for US foreign policy; the President/State Dept or the UST?
