New U.S. intelligence estimates on North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) given to Congress on Wednesday, July 26th did not survive contact with reality for 48 hours.

The intelligence community essentially admits to grossly underestimating North Korea's ICBM threat, based on Pyongyang's first successful ICBM flight-test on July 4.
Range estimated for North Korea's KN-20 ICBM increased from being able to strike Alaska and Hawaii, to striking the U.S. west coast - increasing the estimated range by hundreds of kilometers.

Estimated Initial Operational Capability (IOC) for North Korean deployment of a "reliable" ICBM went from being 2-4 years in the future, to next year-shaving years off estimated IOC.

48 hours after Congress received the above new intelligence estimate, on Friday, July 28, North Korea conducted another successful ICBM flight-test - demonstrating even more advanced capabilities.
