    All the elements of the North Korean nuclear crisis — the relentless drive by Kim Jong Un to assemble an arsenal, the propaganda and deception swirling around his progress, the hints of a covert war by the United States to undermine the effort, rather than be forced into open confrontation — were on vivid display this weekend.

    When a North Korean missile test went awry Sunday, blowing up seconds after liftoff, there were immediate suspicions that a U.S. program to sabotage the test flights had struck again. The odds seem highly likely: Eighty-eight percent of the launches of the North’s most threatening missiles have self-destructed since the covert American program was accelerated three years ago.
