In Congressional testimony yesterday, Undersecretary of State John Bolton named Syria and Libya as "rogue states" and indicated that both nations possess weapons of mass destruction. Does the State Department maintain a formal list of rogue states?

Not exactly, and it's a little surprising that Bolton used the phrase. Throughout the Clinton era, the State Department didn't hesitate to apply the "rogue state" moniker to nations like Iran, Iraq, and North Korea.

What diff does it make if any nation is to be classified into one or other category?For the U.S. govt any nation that attempts to stand on its own w/o bowing before the President of the U.S. is a virtual rogue state.
