North Korea presents more "evidence" of recovered Kim
Tue Dec 16, 9:37 pm ET
SEOUL (Reuters) North Korea stepped up its campaign to prove leader Kim Jong-il is well and in control by showing him looking at an electronic copy of a newspaper dated Tuesday in a series of photos released through its official media.
U.S. and South Korean officials have said Kim, 66, suffered a stroke in August, raising questions about leadership in Asia's only communist dynasty and who was making decisions about the North's nuclear program.
Despite re-emerging in early October in official media reports about making public appearances and seen in unndated photographs, there had been no definite and up-to-date image that showed the reclusive leader in good health.
In the series of photographs released by KCNA news agency, Kim is seen inspecting a library in the northern Jagang province and looking at a computer monitor displaying an electronic copy of the official Rodong Sinmun newspaper dated December 16.
Public appearances by Kim, as well as his health, are held in such secrecy that their exact location and the timing are almost never disclosed, even after the event.
Kim, wearing a heavy winter coat, a fur hat and ski gloves indoors, is shown listening grim-faced to briefings by local officials as he toured the Jagang provincial information center.

I wish Al Reuters (who now partner with Politico) would bother checking into Obambi’s birth certificate. And passport (how did he go to Pakistan?).
When his mother moved to Indonesia and married a man, did he become an Indonesian citizen?
He’s lost a lot of weight.
Looks like the taxidermist did a good job.
He has lost a lot of weight.
“Future’s so bright.....I gotta wear shades!!”
Nine posts and no one has made reference to “Weekend at Bernies”. So I will..............
Kim has begun making appearances only after a team of NK govt officials were seem entering and leaving the Disney Corp Animatronics Lab.........
“Looks like the taxidermist did a good job.”
I keep thinking of that tv show where the guy died but everyone propped him up behind his desk at work for another few weeks so he could qualify for his pension. LOL
I wonder if the taxidermist gave him movable joints (like a Barbie doll) so they can move him into different positions.
The left hand looks suspicious
Notice the little lock boxes to the right of the lady on the left...
He likes those wool mitten/gloves. This is the second picture I have seen him wearing them.
Circulation problems, or tremors, or both?

Weekend at Bernie’s.....er, I mean, Weekend at Kimmie’s
