Elevage d'espions en Corée du Nord.

<Nouvelle page 1

Le Telegraph nous apprend encore de bonnes nouvelles sur le sympathique régime de
Kim Jong Il :

Celui-ci aurait kidnappé des soldats Américains ainsi que des femmes au
Moyen-Orient pour que leurs enfants puissent devenir des espions au service
du grand leader.  Le régime Nord Coréen pratiquait une forme d'élevage
d'enfants pouvant passer pour des Américains. On leur pratiquerait un lavage
du cerveau et les enverrait commes espions aux Etats Unis.



North Korea 'bred spies using former US soldiers'
By Damien McElroy
(Filed: 05/09/2004)

An American army sergeant who spent 40 years in North Korea
has revealed that the Stalinist state operated a programme to
breed spies who could pass themselves off as Westerners.

As a part of a plea-bargain with the American military, who want him court-martialled
on desertion charges, Charles Jenkins has made the extraordinary claim
that other former American soldiers living in North Korea were used to
father children who are now operating as spies abroad.

Mr Jenkins disappeared from a guardbox on the Demilitarised Zone
dividing Korea in 1965. He is now receiving medical treatment in a Tokyo
hospital after being allowed to leave North Korea with his
Japanese wife, but faces attempts to extradite him to the
United States for trial.

According to testimony which Mr Jenkins
will pass to the US, to whom he says he is ready to
surrender, North Korean agents abducted women from eastern Europe
and the Middle East, to be married to American soldiers in

In a statement prepared by his American
military lawyer, Mr Jenkins said: "In two of the cases,
the Americans had multiple children who are now young
adults who appear to be American or European."

According to Mr Jenkins's account, the
Americans were allowed to marry only so that they could
produce spies for North Korea, "so they could target
American interests in South Korea and beyond".

To back up his claim,
Mr Jenkins has produced a photograph of five people he
alleges to be spies for North Korea.
They are believed to be the children of three other
American soldiers -

James Dresnok, Larry Abshier and Jerry Wayne - who disappeared into
North Korea during the Cold War.
He says that the photograph was taken in April.

The 64-year-old infantry trooper was
allowed to leave North Korea for the first timesince 1965
in June. He and his two daughters flew first to Indonesia
to meet his Japanese wife, Hitomi Soga, and then on to Japan.

After undergoing corrective treatment for
a botched prostate operation carried out in North Korea,
Mr Jenkins last week promised to turn himself in to
the American military. Since then he has for the
first time spoken of his hatred for the North Korean regime.
Under its control he endured beatings as officials
turned the American soldiers against each other.

The diminutive Mr Jenkins claims that he
was repeatedly bullied by Mr Dresnok.
"If I didn't listen to the North Korean government,
they would tie me up, call Dresnok in to beat me.
Dresnok really enjoyed it," he said.

The claim that North Korea ran a spy
breeding programme is the latest in a long list
of extraordinary operations that North Korea is believed to have
undertaken in its struggle to gain information about the West.

An impoverished hardline Communist state,
the country survives by devoting most of its resources to
arms programmes and drug-running. Its reclusive leader,
Kim Jong-il is known to have installed "pleasure
squads" of young women from Asia and the Middle
East in villas in Pyongyang. He is also fascinated by
the world of espionage and regularly watches James Bond
films in his private cinemas.

Kim has been accused of leading terrorist
operations in the 1980s, including planting a bomb
on a South Korean airliner, killing hundreds of people.

He was widely believed by the West to be
insane until Madeleine Albright, the former American
secretary of state, declared him to be "perfectly
rational" after a summit in 2000.

The American military said last week that
it would provide Mr Jenkins with a uniform and quarters
on a base outside Tokyo when he surrenders.
"We're always ready to take in deserters and receive them
back," said Major John Amberg, a spokesman for the American army in Japan.
