Kim — that narrows is down to about a fourth of the population. :>)

He’s Korean and his name is Kim. That narrows it down to only 47 million people.

Wonder if the “leak” and story are some kind of big sandbag to make Kim think he has something valuable?

I guess we’ll know, when they take this general out back and shoot him...

(Or would SK carry a ‘false flag’ op that far??)

I doubt that they would conduct a false flag operation to this extreme by destroying the career and life of a general.

As for the general's motivation, not much information on it is reported at this time.

Or put out a story saying he was shot or otherwise dealt with. Then again, the story could be true and there is a major league traitor. If that is the case and he can escape SK, he could get a job at the State Department here.

I’m afraid this is probably true. And, if so, very dangerous.

Just thinking that "Geneal Kim" certainly pins that one down.

1/4? I think it's more when you look at first names and middle names, etc. Gotta be near 100%.

We used to have a guy living next door who ran a semi-pro Koran soccer team. One day they kicked a ball over the fence into my yard during practice.

I shouted out "Hey, Kim, here's that soccer ball" and tossed it.

25 guys shouted back "Hey, thank you".

Or the opposite, they have long known he was a traitor. The arrest tells the North those plans you have are no longer good.

Use to eat at a Korean resultant when I was a kid called Kim’s dinner and they had the best fresh chow mien in the world we use to call the soy sauce bug juice just to try to gross each other out.

There are some bad apples who rose through ranks during Kim Dae-jung Roh Moo-hyun governments. They did so by kissing the two guys' ass. In time, they can be agents of influence and could go one step further. Into the deep end.

The other possibility is that NK moles in gov uncovered major skeletons in his closet, and threatened him to cooperate with them or else. This is a more possible scenario,

Possibly... but I would be more worried about what the KCIA would do to me if I turned traitor and got caught than I would be of any skeleton in my closet.

Maybe the KCIA has been toned down a bit in recent years, but they had a fearsome reputation when I was in the American Navy.

KCIA

First thing Kim Dae-jung did was to gut KCIA(actually renamed as National Security Planning Department) completely. Suspected N. Korean agent headed the agency for a few years. He was a sister living in the North and met her during his trip to the North(if my memory serves correct, it was right before he became director of the agency,) and most likely recruited by N. Korea.

IIRC, they shot EVERY officer who's AO the assassins got through to attack the Blue House back in the 70’s. Of course, the president then was Park Chung Hee, and he was their equivalent of Andrew Jackson.

And in other news, NYPD investigators were seeking two suspects from an armed robbery in Harlem last night, identified as 'Leroy' and 'Tyrone'.

That is a very good theory. I seriously doubt there is anything of material value the NorKs could offer a Major General in the South Korean army to spy for them, but if there was a threat of torture and/or death made against relatives, that would be a powerful incentive.

Then again, if Pyongyang offered some of these goodies, who could possibly resist the lure?
