"If you are born mentally or physically deficient, says Im, the government says your best contribution to society… is as a guinea pig for biological and chemical weapons testing."
"Human experimentation is a widespread practice," Kim says.
"I hoped I was wrong, but it is the reality and it is taking place in North Korea and it is taking place at a number of locations."
The former military captain says it was in the early 1990s, that he watched his then commander wrestle with giving up his 12-year-old daughter who was mentally ill.
The commander, he says, initially resisted, but after mounting pressure from his military superiors, he gave in.
Im watched as the girl was taken away. She was never seen again.
One of Im's own men later gave him an eyewitness account of human-testing.
Asked to guard a secret facility on an island off North Korea's west coast, Im says the soldier saw a number of people forced into a glass chamber.
"Poisonous gas was injected in," Im says. "He watched doctors time how long it took for them to die."
Other North Korean defectors have long alleged that the secretive nation has been using political prisoners as experimental test subjects.
Some have detailed how inmates were shipped from various concentration camps to so-called chemical "factories".

I dunno what to make of this. It could be real, or it could be disinfo to get us all worked up. I wouldn't put anything past Kim, I mean he doesn't even feed them let alone experiment with them.

Aljazeera as the only News Source for this claim makes me highly suspect (and not because Condoleezza Rice says they shouldn't be trusted as credible either).
This has disinfo written all over it.
Children are an instant heart-tug
Disabled Children is heart-tug #2
Disabled Children being harmed is heart-tug #3
Disabled Children being harmed and killed is heart-tug #4
Demonizing Public Enemy #1 in the process is just the icing on the cake.
The first step to justifying any action against a foreign sovereign nation is to make people hate them as if they are sub-human. You can't sell military action or a war on the grounds that the proposed "enemy" is human just like the rest of us. You make claim that they eat babies or commit racial cleansing, and show pictures of a dead child on every network over and over until people are incensed with hatred.
If North Korea is indeed doing these horrific things, such as Aljazeera claims, then hopefully evidence will come to light, even from other sources that are more credible to Americans. Then, we can rally the troops after getting incensed and demand for the head of Lil' Kim.
However, if Aljazeera is the only ones making this claim, I'd be suspect of their motivations. It sounds to me like their staunch Anti-American/Anti-Semitic propaganda is attempting to provoke a conflict between the U.S. and North Korea, and that makes one wonder why they would want such. Any news agency that is a publishing house for Osama bin Laden and routinely chants "Death to America" conveniently pulling a story like this out when no other media outlet has this, makes one highly suspicious.
