Korea assassination

It was 'meh', until today.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/w...-kim/98039356/

An Indonesian woman arrested for her suspected involvement in the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's half brother in Malaysia was tricked into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank, Indonesia's police chief said Friday.

Tito Karnavian told the Associated Press that Siti Aisyah, 25, received payment to be involved in a prank for Just For Laughs, a popular TV show. He said she and another woman carried out stunts that persuade men to close their eyes and then spray them with water.

"Such an action was done three or four times and they were given a few dollars for it, and with the last target, Kim Jong Nam, allegedly there were dangerous materials in the sprayer," Karnavian told the AP......





Pretty fantastic from a operative perspective.

Technically, I believe it was a well conducted assasination. The guy had to be pretty wary knowing the family history.

Strategically, it was one fat Korean killing another fat Korean. I could care less.

That's some James Bond shit right there. I prefer shooting him with a howitzer in 'direct fire' mode like he did his uncle. If NK ever is "liberated", 90% of that country is going to be seriously fucked up in the head. Sad

If true, that is pretty impressive...took thought, planning, targeting of the right people willing to do it, etc.

Dayum.

To say that I'm impressed would be a minor understatement

Personally, I prefer the old Ricin in the Stevia trick, but whatever it takes will do.

Still not as cool as an "accidental bump" at the nightclub with a needle with a heart attack in it.

Hmm, we'd get caught too, so yeah, right. Coerce someone else into it!

It's actually pretty close to the "cyanide sneeze" in the disco in "The Iceman" movie, except for the whole deception-angle.

I remember that one as well. Dude had a lot of tricks for sure.

However, I think this current story is a bit misleading with talk about a female spraying his face as part of a prank being the trick.
It appears the actual delivery of the agent was via a chokehold by a man dressed in drag from the rear, and a chemical-laced(Ricin or Tetrodotoxin) cloth with contact to the face.
