PAGING DON KIRK: Former South Korean spymaster Kim Ki-Sam, who must know where a lot of the bodies from the 2000 North Korea summit scandal are buried, has just been granted asylum in the United States, reports Yonhap. From the article, you have to infer that Kim was able to convince an immigration judge that he has something to be afraid of in South Korea, notwithstanding the recent changes in the presidency and the National Assembly.
Kim is promising to reveal plenty of juicy detail about the scandal. The news conference is set for next Saturday. Yes, I’m tempted to attend.
All of this is delectably timed with Kim Dae Jung’s nip-the-new-president’s-heels tour of America.
