South Korea Intelligence Say Solved Mystery Of Kim Jong Un's Disappearance

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's spy agency said Tuesday it has solved the mystery of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un's 6-week public absence, which set off a frenzy of wild speculation around the world.

The National Intelligence Service told legislators that a foreign doctor operated on Kim in September or October to remove a cyst from his right ankle, according to Park Byeong-seok, an aide for opposition lawmaker Shin Kyung-min. The aide said the spy agency also told lawmakers in a closed-door briefing that the cyst could recur because of Kim's obesity, smoking and heavy public schedule.

After last being seen in state media on Sept. 3, Kim reappeared on Oct. 14 hobbling with a cane, but smiling and looking thinner. The speculation during his absence was particularly intense because of the Kim family's importance to impoverished, nuclear-armed North Korea. The family has ruled the country since its founding in 1948.


Suddenly it seems like much ado about nothing? Seriously, an ankle cyst?

Six weeks for an ankle cyst?

I don't think so.

Is this strange? I broke three bones in my foot a couple of summers ago, and had one of those "boot" things and went about my business. Even planted a small vegetable garden.

Doesn't it seem odd that a minor surgery like this would take him out of the picture for as long as it did?
I'm still thinking perhaps there is more to it than what is revealed here.

Hm. Here ya go:




It wasn't immediately clear how the information was obtained by the spy agency, which has a spotty track record of analyzing developments in opaque North Korea.

The agency also said North Korea has expanded five of its political prisoner camps, including the Yodok camp, which was relocated to the northwest city of Kilchu, according to Lim Dae-seong, an aide to ruling party lawmaker Lee Cheol-woo, who also attended the briefing. The spy agency believes the camps hold about 100,000 prisoners, Lim said

Whatever, it doesn't seem to have slowed down the executions.


He said the agency also believes that North Korea recently used a firing squad to execute several people who had been close to Kim Jong Un's uncle, Jang Song Thaek, who was considered the country's No. 2 power before his sudden purge and execution in December 2013.


Although there has been speculation that Kim wasn't behind his uncle's so-called 'execution'.

How could it NOT be Kim?

If Kim is number 1 and his uncle was number 2 Who higher than Kim would give the green light to bump off the number 2 guy? If it came from someplace other than Kim who would have a pair big enough to bump off number 1 guys number 2 uncle?

Do they ever actually use their military? Except for parades, and to terrorize their own people?

I suppose I am considering the possibility of recent speculations that Kim is actually not in control of the country, that there is moreless a 'shadow government'.

Then that would undermine the whole North Korean belief system that the Kim family were gods blessing on humanity. How did that happen?

Competing theories for his absence had ranged widely from an extended rest period to a leadership coup, via a long list of possible illnesses and ailments including broken ankles, gout and diabetes.


From yahoo news.

Also calls him a 'heavy smoker'. Who knew?

Ever since his disappearance I have wondered what was going on with him. I am not one to normally buy the official story, but this actually seems to be a pretty plausible explanation. With him being the dear leader, I am sure that if he had a surgery, they would make sure he rested well and got the maximum care needed.

Off topic: Every time I read his name, I read it like....

Kim Jong-Il invested heavily into the power of the North Korean OGD, which swore loyalty to him as their leader. After the sudden and unexpected death of Kim Jong-Il, you can guess where a lot of the power remained. This isn't even considering the fact that Kim Jong-Il provided Kim Jong-Un with 'guides', or handlers, to help him in leading the country. Essentially, Kim Jong-Un was prematurely thrust into a position of leadership, where he had guides to steer him, and a powerful organisation, made up of all the top people, which may not even be obedient to him. Now you know why he has had to purge so many people... :/

Funnily enough, as he has been purging people, he has gained greater control at the expense of a less stable government. He has greater power than what he had when he came into office, but his government is constantly changing. Some speculate that Kim Jong-Un's uncle was knocked off by the OGD.

The above article states he actually sprained his ankles while 'touring' various sites in NK, and he left them untreated, (such perseverance!) which caused fractures to develop in both ankles, and apparently a cyst. Says doctors came from Europe to the surgery. Still doesn't say what kind of cyst.

I heard it was a reoccurring knee injury that he had sustained when he broke the world record for the 100m sprint at the last Olympics .. That's according to a North korean paper
