The US created STUXNET virus?

Last night the national news reported leaked info about the STUXNET virus which invaded Iran's nuclear power plants in 2011. Israel was thought to be the culprit, but now a general who was responsible and empowered by the White House has admitted the US and Israel together created it. Why leak the info now? What I want to know is this STUXNET was very sophisticated and virtually undetectable as it read data and set up false reports for those monitoring the computers and reports. It took a year or two for the Iranians to figure out it existed. A huge number of computers were ruined by STUXNET. So, why aren't we employing it against N. Korea and China? Maybe we are. Maybe we will soon.  For more information click here http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/jun/28/retired-gen-james-cartwright-heart-fed-inquiry-stu/
