Absolutely NOTHING that Lil Kim does surprises me! And, I truly mean nothing....

From what I'm reading here in Oz, the assassins where duped into thinking they were part of a reality tv show.
I have seen that theory bumped around the media for a few days; my gut instinct says "I ain't buying it".

"We're going to fly you to Malaysia, <because like Maverick and IceMan, there is no one in the area who can do the job> and then have you spray/wipe this substance on a specific person's face."

Riiiiight.

No matter the backstory, it speaks volumes they did this in a freaking airport. They were guaranteed to be caught on video so whatever the leverage (money, NK brainwashing, fake game show, etc.) that was a one-way trip. Anyone who couldn't see that is a moron.

The Mossad's the best at whacking people in public and getting away with it, (the KGB used to be pretty good at it, too). Everything about North Korea is a clown college. Where else can you get executed by flame thrower for falling asleep during a meeting?:-o:wall::-"

I hear ya, but stranger things have happened. I'm sure there'll be more to this one.

Very interesting to see it was VX that was used.
I wonder if it was deliberately selected to send a message, or if they just looked at the options and said "well that looks like a no-fail option".

Interesting idea.

I was doing an audit of my medical supplies in my unit today and found a bunch of counter nerve agent auto injectors. I held one up and said "Where's Kim Jong Nam!?" :D

I just think he likes to be dramatic. I really don't feel it's much more than "yes I like the drama."
