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?

“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.

I cannot help but suspect that Chia Head is busy acting at a make-shift studio hastily built next to his bedroom. Select crews from N. Korea's movie industry are working with him to create snapshots of his “sorry” life in order to silence “despicable rumor-mongers in the West.” :-)

He likes those wool mitten/gloves. This is the second picture I have seen him wearing them.

Circulation problems, or tremors, or both?

I’m reading a couple of books on the Kim’s and they are going to have to work pretty hard to make him anything close to his daddy in the eyes of the People.

The photos look photoshopped or could easily be of a double. I won’t believe that Kin is alive until I see videos of him arm wrestling with Chuck Norris.

The guy to Chia Pet's right and behind is wearing the "wrong" color hat. Wonder what he was thinking during the photo shoot?

Oh how I would LOVE it if someone would somehow photoshop “Looter Guy” into that photo behind Chia Pet.

Looks like the NORCOMS did a real good job photo shopping out the 2x4 that is probably strapped to his backside so he won't fall over:)
