Toxic Indifference to North Korea
By Abraham Cooper
Saturday, March 26, 2005; Page A15
A day after Pearl Harbor, on Dec. 8, 1941, German death squads in the Polish village of Chelmno gassed Jews in specially equipped vans for the first time. Far from generating banner headlines, the story did not appear in the New York Times until nearly seven months later, on Page 6. Like the Allied powers, the Times consistently ignored or buried such reports until it was too late for 6 million European Jews.
In 2005, the civilized world seems to be deploying the same dismissive, deadly strategy again. I recently returned from debriefing North Korean defectors in Seoul who told me of their involvement in the Pyongyang regime's gassing of political prisoners, dating back to the 1970s and continuing into the 21st century. I traveled to South Korea after officials in Seoul refused to grant a visa to Dr. Lee Byom-Shik (a pseudonym) to come to the United States to serve as a key witness about alleged murders by gassing in North Korea. He was to testify at a Simon Wiesenthal Center conference on human rights abuses in North Korea.
Dr. Lee, 55, is a chemist who told me of his important "achievements" in serving the North Korean regime since the 1970s. He worked with one team that produced bogus Japanese diplomatic passports used by agents to smuggle aboard the bomb that brought down Korean Airlines Flight 001. He helped produce counterfeit $100 bills used by diplomats traveling abroad.

He worked with one team that produced bogus Japanese diplomatic passports used by agents to smuggle aboard the bomb that brought down Korean Airlines Flight 001.
Here are some particulars about that incident..
29 November 1987--A Korean Air Lines Boeing 707 was destroyed in a bombing by two North Korean agents. The two planted a bomb aboard the jet and deplaned in Abu Dhabi. The plane exploded en route to Bangkok at about 11:30 AM while over the Andaman Sea, killing all 115 aboard. The agents were arrested in Bahrain but consumed poison concealed in cigarettes. The male died, but the female survived and later implicated North Korea in plotting the bombing.  Fatalities: 115.
