Report: Kim Jong Un’s Half Brother Worked With CIA
According to a Wall Street Journal source, “there was a nexus” between America’s spy agency and Kim Jong Nam, who was assassinated in Malaysia in 2017. Exactly what information he may have provided about North Korea remains unknown, considering his lack of connection to the ruling regime. Experts say the CIA has a spotty history of recruiting well-informed sources about the isolated country.
How will this affect negotiations with North Korea? The revelation could further tarnish already tense relations, especially after Pyongyang warned Washington to “withdraw its hostile policy” toward the nuclear-armed nation.
