The threat from Korea

The talk of the town at the moment is all about the nuclear threat posed by North Korea. The revelation that one of the countries in the axis of evil has a missile that could reach the western US potentially armed with a nuclear warhead, combined with current feelings about war, has been well received by a nervous population willing to fear.

While it could be ignorance on my part, I'm skeptical that a single untested missile poses a real threat to Seattle. It seems I'm not alone, which really begs the question, why did the CIA bring this to public attention in the first place?
