False Flag: Malaysian Woman Who Assassinated Kim Jong-Un's Half-Brother Was Tricked Into Doing So By Agents Who Convinced Her That She Was Just Participating in a Reality TV Prank Show

Well, there was definitely some punking going on here, on both ends of the prank.

An Indonesian woman arrested for suspected involvement in the killing of the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un's half-brother in Malaysia was duped into thinking she was part of a comedy show prank, Indonesia's national police chief has said, citing information received from Malaysian authorities.

Tito Karnavian told reporters in Indonesia’s Aceh province that Siti Aisyah, 25, was paid to be involved in pranks.

He said she and another woman performed stunts which involved convincing men to close their eyes and then spraying them with water.

"Such an action was done three or four times and they were given a few dollars for it, and with the last target, Kim Jong-nam, allegedly there were dangerous materials in the sprayer," Karnavian said. "She was not aware that it was an assassination attempt by alleged foreign agents."

...

Authorities are investigating whether Siti and another female suspect killed the 46-year-old North Korean exile in a shopping concourse at Kuala Lumpur’s international airport on Monday.

...

The second female suspect, who was captured on CCTV at the airport in a top emblazoned with "LOL" and arrested on Wednesday in possession of a Vietnamese passport, stayed at a hotel near the airport in the days before the attack, booking the cheapest room and carrying a wad of cash, according to a receptionist who spoke to Reuters.

Question: Was she also a victim of the duping, or is she a shill in on the game to help convince the woman that this is all a legitimate, innocent prank production?

If you read the rest of the article, you kinda get the impression that this was a North Korean operation, given that the half-brother was an expat and I guess a threat to Kim Jong-un (as he could, I guess, be swapped on to the throne in a coup). The North Koreans are making all sorts of demands that no autopsy be performed, that an autopsy is a human rights violation, and that they dispute whatever conclusions the autopsy points to.

I can't think of a more blatant way to say "We killed him."

Incidentally, the half-brother recently wrote to Kim Jong-un to beg him to "spare his life."

Request denied, I guess.

Headline correction: In the headline (and just the headline), I wrote "Kim Jong-un" instead of "Kim Jong-un's half brother."

I've fixed that now.
