Trump Says He Received Another "Beautiful Letter" From Kim Jong Un

Kim Jong Un's half brother was CIA informant - WSJ

President Trump promised he wouldn't allow the CIA to use spies against North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un after reports surfaced that Kim's half brother had been a USA intelligence asset before he was assassinated in Malaysia.

The fact that the CIA held meetings with Kim Jong-nam illustrates the lengths USA intelligence will go to gather information about the hermetic country.

"His brother would have considered talking to American spies a treacherous act". Pyongyang has denied the allegation.

The Wall Street Journal's source told the publication that there was a "nexus" between the CIA and Kim Jong-nam and that he likely also aided Chinese and other foreign intelligence agencies.

According to the New York Times, North Korea is "known to have stockpiled" chemical weapons, and US and South Korean authorities have accused its government of orchestrating the plot.

Kim Jong Nam died after having his face smeared with the outlawed VX nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur International Airport on February 13, 2017 in a Cold War-style assassination that shocked the world.

Vinograd added that Trump seems to be sending a message to US sources that "he's not going to say anything if they're assassinated with nerve agents". The U.S. president said his message to the North Korean leader would be that, "I wouldn't let that happen under my auspices".

1 killed, 6 injured when crane collapses in Dallas
The Dallas Morning News reports that the five others were hospitalized, two in critical condition and two in serious condition. The woman died when the crane collapsed and cut through a number of apartment buildings, the Associated Press reported .

Lawyers for the women have said they were pawns in a political assassination with clear links to the North Korean Embassy in Kuala Lumpur.

A man believed to be Kim Jong-Nam is surrounded by journalists upon his arrival at Beijing's capital airport, in February 2007. The women, one an Indonesian national and another from Vietnam, said after their arrest that they had been paid for the attack, which they thought was part of television show prank.

Two women were charged with poisoning Kim by smearing his face with liquid VX, a banned chemical weapon.

Many details of Kim Jong-nam's relationship with the Central Intelligence Agency remain unclear.

It added the "arrogant and unilateral policy" of the United States would never work with North Korea.

The CIA operatives had met with Kim, 45, on several occasions, according to a Wall Street Journal report. "Several former USA officials" told the Journal that intelligence agencies had deemed the exiled half brother, who lived in Macau, was unlikely to ever rise to power and was unlikely to have any useful information on his brother's doings (or, say, nuclear program).
