0700: Kicking it off with an earlier-than-usual morning video-conference intelligence briefing on DPRK. Perhaps an inauspicious start to the day considering the topic, but here we go. At least the wildly bombastic North Korean rhetoric is always highly entertaining.
- DPRK claims, “hideous terrorist group” conspired with CIA and South Korea’s Intelligence Service (IS) to, “commit bomb terrorism targeting the supreme leadership” via, “biochemical substances including radioactive substance and nano poisonous substance”.
- DPRK claims to have “recently uncovered and smashed” said plot.
- Historically, South Korean Defense Minister, Han Min-Goo (Koo), speaking in September 2016, confirmed option to assassinate Kim Jon Un saying, “Yes, we do have such a plan.”
Rather Meaningless but of amusement:
- The acronym for South Korea’s intelligence service is identical to that of the self-proclaimed Islamic State (DAESH).
