FLASH: North Korea: Our missile test failed (UPDATED)

UPDATE: What do you think?

ORIGINAL POST: The New York Times reports that North Korea claims it conducted a missile test early Sunday morning (North Korean time). And it was a dud.

North Korea launched a ballistic missile Sunday morning from near its submarine base in Sinpo on its east coast, but the launch failed, according to the South Korean military.

The timing was a deep embarrassment for the North’s leader, Kim Jong-un, because the missile appeared to have been launched to show off his daring as a fleet of American warships approached his country to deter provocations.

Hmmm…I smell something fishy.
