"We were just talking about the downside of social media but one of the most fascinating parts of this for me is the role that social media actually played in their defense Do you think that they would have had much of a chance without that. No there's a there's a lot of irony to this story. It's kind of like you're saying it but it would have played like like a like a comedy in some ways. There's a lot of. There's a lot of irony in the story not only totally of the juxtaposition of these prank shows. There's this warble assassination but also with those themes. You're talking about namely i. I truly believe it is a cautionary tale about social media. But you're totally right. That with out the world of social media we would be left to wonder whether these women are guilty and that digital imprint in many ways proves their their innocence wise. There's an incredible irony in the sense that both of these women were desperately trying to be famous and that led them to these circumstances and they achieved their goal. You know they are much more famous than they probably ever expected. They would ever become a prank show but clearly. They became famous for the darkest and most morbid of reasons and so we were constantly having to grapple with those sort of duality editing room. Of how do you how do you straddle all of those worlds. How do you kind of walk that tightrope. Tony but also structurally and you know the idea that that because these women were so public on social media they can prove their innocence is is the ultimate irony there famous for all the wrong reasons but just go look back at everything they were trying to do to be famous and it kind of i wouldn't say proves but it but it definitely sheds light on the fact that they might be an end in addition to one and city. The malaysian police. Also had i think eight north korean suspects either in custody or suspects that they wanted for questioning pretty early on who were they. And how did they slip through the authorities fingers so malaysia. North korea have diplomatic relations. There's a north korean embassy in in In malaysia in kuala poor and quite a lot of north koreans working in malaysia. So they were. Many four of those people were living in in malaysia. Eh time either. Working for the embassy or working for the north korea national airline or of the others Who we name in the film. Where more of the the spies that were masking. As japanese producers and recruiting and conditioning the women for months those four men that played a direct role in the assassination and by direct. I mean like they literally put the tax into the women's hands right before they assassinated kim jong-nam or these are the men that you can see on cellphones immediately. After he dies presumably reporting back to headquarters those four guys escaped the country immediately. After kim jong nam died you can see them going into bathrooms. Changing their clothes. Disguising themselves facial hair disappears..

"Assuming that this. Vx nerve agent is commonly available. It's not like these. Two women could have gone down to the pharmacist and bought a few hundred milligrams of vx so usually has access to this sort of stuff. Virtually nobody you know. It's one of the highest and substances in the world so i think maybe the upper echelons of foreign governments might have access to it. But i believe this is one of the only times it's ever been used of against a civilian. I remember that. I think it was that subway attack in tokyo or somewhere in japan and the nineties. Remember where someone used it against people and kill them. But i think that's one of the very few times so that was a big question from the very beginning like your average citizen can't cook up the it's an incredibly. It's an incredibly danger has substance that needs the the utmost expertise to be cooked accurately and safely and so that was a big question. All along is how did this substance make. Its way across the malaysian border to be used against kim jong-nam when he was traveling there. Yeah so this would seem to narrow it. Down to state actors in presumably more specifically north korean dictator kim jong hoon but i guess my question is why his brother was already basically living in exile. So what would have been the urgency to take him out of the picture and to do so in such a dramatic fashion. There's a lot of reasons why whether there's two separate questions here. The why kim jong nam was threat. There are a lot of reasons. So kim jong-nam first of all was the oldest brother and he was the oldest son of kim jong il so he had a very rightful stake to the to the to the throne. He was passed up for various reasons that we explore in our documentary in favor of kim jong un but he was very publicly questioning kim jong un's legitimacy we have them on camera questioning whether hereditary succession should be a thing of kim jong nam was seen as much more western leaning in his political philosophy and he was also saying publicly..

"With award. Winning director and producer ryan white who has a compelling new documentary about the two thousand seventeen assassination of kim jong. Un's half brother and the two young women who were accused of masterminding it. The film is called assassins and it opens in theaters december. Eleventh followed by video on demand released january fifteenth ryan white. Welcome to the podcast. Thank you for having me. Well first of all. What a terrific film. I mean it had some real cloak and dagger stuff in here is just fascinating. And i don't think that i'm alone in that i remember when the assassination happened in two thousand seventeen and maybe some vague facts surrounding it but i did not even know the half of the story until i watched this film. Is that pretty much common reaction that you're hearing one hundred percent. You are absolutely not alone. In fact i am the exact same boat as you. So the reason for that is if you look back at when this assassination happened. It was february of two thousand seventeen so in the weeks prior trump had just been inaugurated so our news media was being totally overrun by the trump show as as it has been for the four years afterwards but this was sort of the beginning of that trend. And you know what was one of the biggest political assassinations of our lifetime. I think normally would have months of coverage was a blip on. The radar was a headline for one day and then and then it dissipated into the ether. And so i think most americans kind of have a glimmer of recognition when they hear about this assassination. They usually know that two women were involved because that was such such a sensational detail but very few people know the back story and almost nobody knows what happened to the two women who went on trial for murder and they were on death row. So i was the exact same way and then in late. Two thousand seventeen journalist approach me. His name is doug bob clark. And he was writing an article about this story for g. q. magazine that was very deep dive. Investigative look into the life of one of the women who had assassinated kim jong nam and the premise of that story essentially was city aisha. That's her name admits to assassinating kim jong-nam but she says she thought she was on a reality show when she did it and she didn't know she was assassinating someone so doug called me while he was writing that article and it seems like the most inconceivable bananas defense for political assassination ever but i was very compelled and doug is very credible journalist A few weeks later. I was on a flight with him to malaysia where this assassination happened meeting all of his sources. And that's that's where it all began. I let that shoot and malaysia. Thinking of like even if there isn't true this story is too wild not to be told and like you said when it happened it was so quickly overshadowed by the daily chaos of the first month or so of the trump presidency that a lot of us forgot about it or never really heard what happened with all of this so just to begin with. I'm wondering if you could take us back to the events of february thirteenth twenty seventeen and remind us of the broad strokes of what happened or what was reported in the media. What was the initial story in the press. Sure so the very initial reports were because of a little bit of leaks..

"Very nice leather. I appreciate it. I think North Korea has tremendous potential and the one that feels that more than anybody is Kim Jong UN. He gets it. And again, the letter said, was a beautiful letter is a very warm letter. That's thing. President Trump once again extolling the beauty of his relationship on the letters. He gets from the North Korean dictator. We don't know if it was another one of the giant letters, just that it was beautiful. We do know the president really enjoys this kind of correspondence. Chairman Kim Kim Jong sent me a beautiful letter today's ago he likes me I like him we get along. He wrote me two of the most beautiful letters. This is a historic letter and it is a historic letter. It's a beautiful. It's a beautiful piece of art. He wrote me beautiful letters and their great ladders. We fell in love. He must have some better than average letterhead Trump's renewed praise for the North Korean leader comes as we're learning more about Kim Jong UN's, half brother, who it's believed. He had assassinated back in twenty seventeen. There are reports Kim's half. Brother was also an American intelligence asset, according to a new book released just today, the author of which will join us tomorrow night. Kim Jong nam became an informant for the CIA. And on the day he was killed security camera footage. Showed him in a hotel, elevator with an Asian looking man, who was reported to be an American intelligence agent at that news. The president appeared to side with North Korea over something that is a staple of our intelligence business. I saw the information about the CIA with respect to his brother or half brother, and I would tell him that would not happen under my under my auspices. That's for sure. I wouldn't. I wouldn't let that happen under my auspices. So here's how are former CIA director John Brennan responded to the president's comments earlier tonight on this network. He has no pre Shen for the importance of the intelligence profession, and the work that tell professionals do around the globe to include going out and trying to recruit individuals to provide us the insights, you need to keep country strong and save the most recent letter from Kim Jong own appears to be the first correspondence since the failed nuclear summit in Hanoi, since then Kim Jong UN has resumed short range testing so far, there's been no sign an agreement is any closer to reality. Another break for us, and coming up a moment of genuine passion, and genuine emotion that broke out in congress today, but no, not from any member of congress. Last thing before we go tonight, there, he was our friend. John Stewart, a New Jersey native who was living in New York on nine eleven and in the years since he's been out front on behalf of the first responders to get funding for the health health crisis that has been slicing through their population. We are nearing the point where the deaths of first responders after nine eleven will soon surpass the death toll of first responders on nine eleven. There's a cancer epidemiology among them remember the Bush administration, EPA administrator told us the air was safe to breathe down there at ground zero thousands worked on that pile. I in the search for bodies and then in the effort to clear what had become a tomb and make no mistake. They were all victims of the same terrorist attack. The funding from congress has been stretched so thin payouts been reduced. It's a heavy lift to get the funding. Reauthorized every five or so years, and that was behind Jon Stewart's frustration and emotion today. And I'm sorry if I sound angry un-diplomatic, but I'm angry and you should be too, and they're all angry as well, your indifference costs, these men and women their most valuable commodity time. They responded in five seconds. They did their jobs with courage, grace. To nasty humility. Eighteen years later do yours. And to those in congress who have treated this rising death toll with benign neglect, and I know who they are, perhaps dismissing it as a New York problem, Jon Stewart reminded congress today, the terrorist, didn't declare death to Tribeca. They declared death to America and that is our broadcast on this Tuesday night.

"You clearly remember that he was assassinated by two women who got within touching distance of his face and a Malaysian airport west mention to seventeen right? They hot ladies. I thought they were. But west corrected me. I didn't see the video parents. They didn't need to be because it came up behind him. I thought that came up in front of our like Kim Jong-Nam. Now, you're so handsome sneak attack from behind. They were just assess you ever seen a hot lady. Sneak up on someone that doesn't happen. They don't need. They approach you front. That's the best way is are they know what they're doing? You're exactly right. I was thinking the other way hot women you can see from behind because, you know, you can sense. The hot women are invisible from the front. Anyways, while turns out, maybe he deserved it as Kim, Jong-Nam half brother of North Korean leader. Kim Jong UN was a CIA informant aka huge motherfucking snitch. Hold on, hold on. That's good for us. He's, he's on our team. Look, whether it's good for us or not. He's still a huge mother fucking snitch snitch to his bro. Come on supposed to be like, oh, it's good for US will know. We are supposed to be like that. It's good for you as I can so calm. A snitch. Kim Jong nam the late North Korean dictator. Kim Jong Il's eldest son apparently met on several occasions with agency operatives, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Also, the snitch journal is calling out call at that. They cited a personal knowledgeable. This person knowledgable about the matter as their source. So that person was not able to comment because he's been eaten by piranhas. What a qualifier the wall to Wall Street will put who'd he got who's your a person knowledgeable fish fish shit is, what is apparently Kim Jong nam was almost certainly in contact with security services of other countries, as well, particularly China's probably because everyone is worried about the lunatic running the show. All right. Yeah. Wouldn't you be like if you were born into North Korea, you'd be doing all you could get out of there, you'd be like a cat, a clot of a bucket in shower, you grew up with them. How's he with ninja turtle action figures them all Burnham? He never shared them. He heads off. Barbie dolls. He always use Rafael. Now, they're like, what do you thinking today? Play basketball and order a few hits, public murders and watch him poorly for God, loves basketball, he probably fucking sucks, basketball, he's probably like a forty percents is a basketball, I think he's just jealous because this guy was living the life like outside of North Korea. Like he had like all these cars. I mean Kim Jong. Kim Jong Hoon has that inside. But he can't exactly leave the country is Free Willy nilly as. Navas out of the country. He was the type of guy that lowers the basketball hoop to eight feet to Deng contests and never raises it with tramp, trampling still hasn't feet like when you were twelve he's still has there anyways. Honestly, this is probably not good for anyone. How's the CIA allowing Trump to go visit Kim Jong UN if they knew Kim Jong Hoon assassinated? His brother for fuck sake, a year or so ago because he was four. Maybe maybe they don't like Trump Trump meets with a lot of bad, motherfuckers. I know. But particularly just he's going into the lines. Then. I mean you can't be like, hey, hey, Kim. Thanks for taking the nuclear sites. Appreciate really sorry, that the CIA turn your brother. And yet to kill him. He's got to do it in Singapore. The most stressful president to protect because the way he shakes hands. He goes in full force with his handshake, which if your secret service you like, oh chill out. Bro is leave himself susceptible to attack. I'm just saying while to like the poison the nerve. Exactly. He should. Trump should definitely have a one of those like electric shocks and his arm. Sweet..

"Daily Beast is here more shadows. This is more chapter ones of spy thrillers. We welcome Suzanne Scholte president of defense forum foundation chair of the North Korea. Freedom coalition doubt understand a story about a group that is now accused of terrorism by North Korea. I know that's rich. But this is the world we live in because this group at the same time is linked to break in perhaps or confrontation or an abduction. There are many words for this with North Korean personnel. An attempt to persuade entice embrace north Fran personnel to defect. This. Same group is linked to the now murdered half. Brother of Kim Jong sung, that's Kim Jong nam crack mccartan. So a very good evening to you. We'll start with the Madrid Bassy. Can you shed any light on this is this a an ongoing dance? Around the world that all of a sudden pops up the diaspora North Korean groups that versus the of the thugs of John Yang. Good evening to you. I will say I'm gonna take a look at this at a completely different way. I believe, but I know that I do not know the members of that group. I do except for agent. Hong who is the leader the leader at it. I can tell you this. He is an exceptionally talented person. Who I knew when he was when he was a college student. He was the one that founded liberty North Korea which exploded across the US college campuses, and it can energized the young college students in the North Korea human rights movement is extremely capable a willing to put his life at risk. He got involved in underground railroad was arrested in China. But basically pushed life at risk to rescue North Koreans. I have not been in communication with them for years. I do understand that he started this group. I believe that what happened in Madrid was they were helping people in that embassy possibly to defect in something went wrong. And that's what. I believe they were it seems as if they were let in without any any difficulty. They deny all these outrageous charges that are being made against them. But that's what I believe happened at believe that is you you brought up that this. They have this is a group that helped rescue the the family of Kim Kim Jong-Nam when he'd been murdered. They helped rescue that family, and they were credited with that they work with several governments to accomplish that. But in this particular incident, I believe that you see these high profile defections happening different embassies, targeting embassies in one point out to about the embassies in North Korea. The embassies North Korea. Art, some benign entity, that's there to help make their country. Look good advocate for the country. These are criminal places where criminal activity occurs. The embassies are used to launder money to obtain to to get listed banned goods to Kim's on to the regime to to to to counterfeit. I mean, the embassies are criminal hubs. And so I think we have to recognize that as well. But that's what I believe happened. I believe that these this group was trying to help either the high ranking diplomat there possibly more than several people and somebody got nervous and the whole thing fell apart. And that's what my my take is on this thing. And I'm gonna be very defensive of group. I think it's great. I think I I'm not sure those are the tactics I would use. But I think it's great to to. There's there people out here that are still passionate about. This issue about trying to put pressure on that regime that they put their own lives at risk. And the other thing I want to point out to this group wouldn't be trying to attack or diplomats because they've actually been trying to rescue people at all levels of society. They'd be very be very much against Kim Jong, but they're not trying to put diplomatic risk that. So that's why I think it was a botched temp for a defection. I think some of the people there were trying to defect something happened the debate that the detail is this happened on February twenty second when ten members of the group entered the North Korean embassy in Madrid. This is a Spanish court reporting is no evidence of a break-in entered and tried to convince a senior of grain official to defect. That's what the Spanish side, Gordon. Susan over the last eighteen months, or so there have been a number of high level defections of North Korean diplomats is there. Discontent in the diplomatic core. You know, you mentioned the criminality of North Korea's embassies, and you're absolutely really important point. Absolutely, correct. On that our diplomats just dissatisfied or they worried about this sustainability of the regime. What's going on here? I believe they are. And I think that the summits between Kim in moon and Kim and Trump have given some false hope for the people of North Korea that things are going to improve their they're waiting for something to happen there believing that there's gonna be some change in how North Korea's ferry and that's just not happening. And I think the people are confused about what Kim's on doing. He's not accomplishing anything. The sanctions are obviously causing a lot of pain to the regime, and so I think there's a lot of discontent. And and I think I said this last time I had the honor of being on your show is we have to recognize that that even the people in that regime, the how much they suffer. We know about the political prisoner camps. We know about the refugee try scape. The horrific human rights violations happening every day in North Korea. But we have to remember people in that regime that are running that place or helping Kim's on their faced with a terrible choice. Every morning they wake up. To be to do whatever they need to do to help on to see their family executed in front of them. And and then then their own lives taken. And so they're under incredible stress. And so I believe that there is a lot of confusion and uncertainty right now. And I think that Trump has laid out for Kim Jong away forward as it was described to me recently. He's opened the door and said, hey, you can change you can reform get rid of your nuclear program. You can have a brighter future North Korean can have a brighter future. And he's given them that that choice to to to to accept the changes in North Korean. Diplomats are looking at this. And wondering what is the future going to be so Kim Jong maybe facing a crisis of rising expectations. I know that from here talk. We just hosted a couple of defectors a couple of weeks ago, we have about a minute, Suzanne, go home. The people in north. We're very confused. The things are things are so bad. They're suffering so much, and they have so much hope when they see these summits that there's going to be some change in no changes coming so. Absolutely. And we have to keep up. The sanctions we have to keep up the pressure, and we have to remember never forget that the sufferings happening that country everyday crimes against humanity every day that is the theory of revolution. It comes with rising expectations. Certainly with the French revolution. The expectation that things will get better not worse. And that would be the foundation for trouble. Suzanne Scholte of this group that entered the Spanish embassy, and is now under review it very much reminds me of the very famous story of the scarlet Pimpernel, I believe you all know, the man who had rescue of French people who'd been condemned by to the guillotine they seek him here. They seek. From there those Frenchies. Seek him everywhere is in heaven or is in how the Dan.

Vietnamese Woman to Face Trial Alone in Killing of Kim Jong-nam
"Do start John with a story here being reported in the South China Morning post, but everywhere else, it is a well, it it seems redundant to call story attached to North Korea bizarre because they always. But this this one has been way up there. This is the saga of the two women charged with the murder of the half brother of Kim Jong Hoon in Kuala Lumpur airport. That's right one of whom was released on Monday released because the prosecutors simply drop the charges against her nurse nation that she simply walked free. She was intonation and the other woman Vietnamese hot reasonably thought that she too might be released shortly. But no it turns out that today. The the Malaysian prosecutors said that she must stand trial. They have posed the Trump. Seatings because she's upset understandably again, they'll review on the first of April where she will for the first time give testimony. I think the big difference though, between them is that the the initial woman who's released doesn't seem actually to apply the nerve agent to Kim Jong now if he wants to see TV what happened in that airport. Concourse is the Vietnamese woman who goes up and puts a cloth impregnated with with the X on his face, the nation, simply stuns aside. So they're trying to simplify this case. Then by the look of it. They're trying to simplify it all pops. They simply decided that didn't have enough evidence to convict Indonesian woolen courses. Two years. Just elapsed. Have they worked out that even if she with guilty association with the murder, we'll probably got a couple of years. So the might doesn't let to walk free

So the other guy, hey, was the Facebook was providing more data to smartphone manufacturers than perhaps uses where aware of and that was to breach your privacy.

Absolutely enormous outage has occurred with the biggest to our mind since two thousand and eight and given the size of the site in two thousand eight which was a mere one hundred fifty million. I think we can describe this one that's happening. The moment as the most severe that he's ever had because the site has now around two point five billion users on its and what's been affected is the Facebook app itself. People have been out I post unable to see the night, vacations Instagram the image sharing up that's been disrupted. What sap the messaging app the Facebook has has been disrupted. This has been a significant day for them. And he's been having a significant impact on on many many users solo over the world, which is where this is affecting. It's a global problem that Facebook at does the company know what's happened as yet? No, they don't know. Or at least they haven't told us what happened the one thing. They have said is that they're aware of it. And they're looking to resolve it and they've also dismissed rumors that it was the victim of a particular type of cyber attack was known as distributed denial of service attack. That's technique. The hackers can sometimes used to Aruba wellm services with a lot of traffic to make them fall over. I be able to handle that kind of traffic. Facebook says that hasn't happened in this case, but it hasn't gone any fervor. It hasn't told us what it does think has happened. If indeed it knows at this point.

"This was a very strange well, plotted assassination. It's believed that North Korean agents found these women and hired them to participate in what they said was a prank Show, TV prank show, having them rub substances on strangers faces and public places the target of. This was Kim Jong-Nam the brother of Kim Jong Hoon. One woman rubbed a substance on his face and sort of ran off saying sorry, sorry, not too long after that. Another woman comes up and sort of hugs him and rubs a second substance on his face. Well, VX nerve agent is the way that you usually deliver that to a target is you rub one half of. The chemical combination on someone and then the other half, and then it seizes up their muscles. And they very quickly die that appears to be what happened to Kim Jong-Nam. He ran to the bathroom. He tried to wash stuff off and he began to die very quickly right there in the airport. We start in Malaysia. Where new details emerge surrounding the murder of Kim Jong nam the half brother of North Korean leader, Kim Jong UN look today. We're supposed to be the resumption of a hearing against one of the women in Asian woman named CIT is she's in her late twenties. What happened though was the judge cancelled the case and said that she was free to go. In fact, she's already back home in Indonesia. That yarmulke. She said this is my day of freedom. She was extremely tearful. And she said she wasn't expecting this to happen herself. She wasn't expecting that. She would be allowed to go home so quickly. So it was a shock to her as well. There were two women charged in this crime, don't t- hung from Vietnam. Her fate is not yet resolved. She has not yet been released. In fact, she faces more hearings later this week and her we're not exactly sure what's going to happen with her. So as for why Kim Jong nam was targeted in the first place. He was on the outs with his family with the Kim dynasty. He was groomed to be dictator material, but he turned out not to be dictator material kind of sloughed off and ended up living a sort of quiet life and the city of Macau sort of gambling mecca after his brother's ascent to the throne. It could be that Kim Jong UN and the Kim regime saw him as a Lou. Loosened that needed to be taken out. He certainly knew a lot and was capable of embarrassing them or humiliating them. With all the stuff. He knew the world's Patrick win. Reporting from Bangkok with the latest in the strange case of the murder of Kim Jong owns half brother, Kim Jong nam the cliff divers of Acapulco Mexico.

"kim jong nam" Discussed on Sleuth
"Welcome to sleuth. I'm Linda Sawyer this week. We are back in Santa Ana courtroom for our front row trial coverage of Rachel buffets accessory to murder trial. Matt Murphy has prosecute his case for nearly a week and is ready for his closing arguments. David Medina on the other hand Rachel's defense counsel feel so confident he is presented plenty of reasonable doubt in the trial that he doesn't put on a single witness for the defense court spectators wondered whether Rachel herself would take the stand in her defense after all not more than a month before the trial. Rachel was presented an offer that included pleading guilty to a misdemeanor with no jail time. She turned it down and expressed wanting her day in court. So why did she tell the judge? She didn't think it was necessary. She takes the stand perhaps it'll all make sense as we listened into both. Matt murphy. And David Medina's closing arguments to jurors are sleuth guest. Daniel was next defense cancels got Sanders. Returns to analyze the final summations from both council. So I want to welcome back. Scott Sanders to sleuth today. Thanks for being here. Scott. Thank you. We're going to now go to the final closing arguments of Mr Murphy, speaking to the jurors during the Rachel buffet accessory to murder trial, and then we'll stop in a few places. And and talk about what we're listening to give you an overview first thing there are two ways that I can sort of go about this. There's a. You heard this morning that I get to arguments. Some of you have set assures before know that there's a a tactic notice sandbagging. Okay. You see it more in the lower ranks with people. I start where a prosecutor has y'all -tunities to not talk about certain pieces of evidence. And then they wait for the defense to get up. And then they save little nuggets. And they throw that out there when the defense can't answer it kinda see that it's called sandbagging kinda cheap. And so I'm going to be thorough. As I go through these facts you've been thrown all a whole bunch of information and a whole bunch of live this morning. Those stipulations that's probably two weeks of contested evidence. Just from this morning. So very much out of respect for the professionalism of from Edina. And also fairness to this buffet, I wanna lay out everything upfront and give them an opportunity to respond to whatever they feel. They want to respond to whatever they want to address. They don't have to so. So essentially, I'm gonna talk about the law, and I'm going to not going to go through every instruction again. But there are certain basic concepts that are very important for everybody to understand we talked about this a little bit during jury selection, but the law fundamentally is based on common sense. Right. So each one of these things should not only make sense to I I believe when you when you leave this experience, and you go home, and you get to talk to people about it, husbands wives, friends, whoever that you'll see that the law truly is it's fair. It's based on fairness, and when we get a group of people like we have here that agree to follow the law, and you agree to put your lives on hold. We come in. And discuss a matter like this when we do it, right? The Justice is going to be done. You're going to do the right thing. So we're going to talk about Justice. And in fact, the Justice that we are hoping we can always count on in every courtroom. But indeed I wanted to tell your listeners how you feel about Matt Murphy's form of Justice. Well, it's interesting to hear him talk about how it will all be laid out. How will all be there for you? When they're missing sort of the largest component. Which is from my perspective. What he argued in our case? So this portrait of fairness, and even as a watch it, not as Rachel buffets. Lawyer is a little difficult to watch. And yet somehow he does manage to make it work in his favor. That's because that jury is limited to what they're hearing in this particular courtroom. So it's not as if the ship in. Out of the blue are trial. They're not going to hear any of it. They're not gonna have a sense of what's there? So they're going to hear what he wants them to hear..
"kim jong nam" Discussed on Don't Worry About The Government
"And what is that though? Sorry, since I mentioned it. So I went, I went to grad school and international fairs, and there's a subset in my grad school called strategic studies, and they're obsessed with this guy. So this was a Greek. He was a historian who who chronicled the Peloponnesian war, and it's a famous history of of the conflict and the is it the, this is why no one says it. You can't even get off your tongue to cities trap is where a rising power challenges the Gemini of an existing power. And because of that, the conflict between them that neither side necessarily wants the becomes almost inevitable as they jockey for position breaks out. And this happens a lot where rising power. Challenge the existing power and they'll fight. It happens a lot in European history in particular, and a lot of people thought that it would happen during the Cold War. The Soviets rose to challenge US Gemini and a lot of people argue that the main reasons that it didn't was everyone had nuclear weapons. So the cost of an enormous. But the other argument is basically the Soviets never got strong enough to actually seriously challenge. Gemini like the United States was always way richer and way more powerful. And so it didn't come to that, but it's come to that a lot. They were still trying to. I mean, that's the other part. Yeah. I mean, the city's trap from what I understand is that you try to challenge the hegemony, you don't necessarily overtake. Yeah, exactly. And so like the United States and China do not actually want to fight a war with each other. I don't think either side wants that, you know, maybe Steve Bannon wants that, but like nobody actually wants because that would be catastrophic. But like there are so many reasons why China continues to exert influence in neighboring countries in its region building. Islands claiming, see rights cetera, claiming Taiwan that they're all these flashpoints that could set off a war that nobody wants. And as China becomes more and more powerful, the United States becomes more and more conscious about it and will move to defend its Gemini. And so the possibility of a conflict is very anyway, like nobody partially because the geopolitics didn't necessitate us talking about this, but like what? Kofi enter Ban Ki moon. We're in office. Nobody was talking about this now. Donio Don't you. Gutierrez is talking about this in his general assembly speech, and it's just sort of like a Mark that we're living in interesting times as it were like way too interesting times where things that we used to take for granted as a stable world are slipping away from us. And this sort of thing like this is the sort of thing that can cause miscalculation that can really change the dynamic. This one probably won't. That doesn't change the fact that somebody is dead and it sucks. But like this one probably won't change these sort of geopolitical. Although I think it will affect the country's image although who even knows like, I think this has moved the needle on a small level. So to your point, I don't think this is the straw that broke the camel's back, but this cracked a few vertebrates way to put it I know like, but think about this. One thing that this reminds me of is when Kim Jong nam was killed in the Malaysian airport, using a nerve agent, which is insane. And the North Koreans were playing for this. They denied it, and this was. This was kind of like a sense that this regime is rogue that it's like crazy. It's firing missiles. We might go to war with them. It's and people were talking like, this is crazy, and Malaysia was one of the few countries that had these relations with North Korea anyway. And then a year goes by and trumpet, Kim are meeting Singapore, and there's all this diplomatic bent towards peace and everyone is completely forgotten..

"Very pleased with the decision. Is it good He gave a good. Judgment and judgment But there's a second round. For, the accused of that this money well the BBC's Jonasson head. Is watching, this in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur I asked him what the worst. Punishment these women could face, might be if they are found guilty. They face the death penalty by hanging that is. The penalty for premeditated murder in Malaysia it is. Something that clearly concerns their defense lawyers they've argued all along that there is compelling evidence that these women were. Unwitting pawns in a North Korean conspiracy the problem is that in the very long hearings we've had that. Have lasted for more than six. Months the prosecution's case has been put so the court hasn't yet heard the evidence that the defense will now have to present that these women believes that they were being recruited for kind of prank film series that they. Were carrying, out jokes with harmless liquids and indeed this plenty of evidence. That we've seen it that they were Created and practice this many times before hand the judge took a very narrow. View, of the evidence he pointed out that there is, security camera video showing the two women at the airport one of. Them, putting her hands over the face of Kim Jong nam and of course, he died shortly afterwards from having the deadly nerve agent VX smeared on. Him therefore they have to, be culpable it was quite a harsh. Interpretation of the evidence by the judge he said. There was enough evidence to infer a conspiracy between. These two women and four North Korean men who are also charged but rebel to flee the country the same. Day and said that they had to be responsible regardless of any North Korean involvement he didn't even really. Dollars that it was a political. Assassination he said the evidence for that wasn't there that was very disappointing for the defense lawyers but of course now that the trial goes ahead they do have their opportunity to make their case that these women are in. Effect innocent players yeah you mentioned the bizarre way all of this is Shown on Cici TV footage and of course those four. Other individuals who've been implicated do we know for, fact that these are the same people. That did leave the country or is that speculation I mean do we know where these four individuals are we don't for sure one of the most extraordinary things about. This case is how little is. Being said about North Korea's role understandably the prosecution of focusing on. These two women because they're the only defendants they have even so it's remarkable that North Korea has hardly ever been mentioned the names of these North Koreans Papa the nobody seems to know very much about them other sources suggest they are in fact senior. North Korean intelligence agents the man who recruited CPI Asia the. Indonesian defendant, the police investigation the case say they don't even know for sure that he's. Left the country, and there were other North Koreans, who were allowed to leave when there was a standoff with Malaysian diplomats being held in Pyongyang. Shortly. After these has nation so. That offense say look There's an obvious massive North Korean involvement here there's been no. Effort apparent effort, made by the Malaysian government to get, these people back even though woman imagine prospects have put your remote for that on these women are being made? To carry, the can for this entire political assassination but? That's what we've heard. So far all of the hearing so far focused on these women and very little has been said about. The, role of North Korea and indeed even at this moment Malaysia is talking about restoring full. Relations with with North Korea almost as though nothing happened and just the word on the victim. Kim, Jong nam why may have been targeted in this. Way well at one stage of course he was the heir to. The North Korea leadership the chosen, heir of his, father Kim Jong Il fell, out with him after a strange episode where he was caught illegally, entering the country I went into obscurity he's been living in the gambling of Macau China ever since then, and his half-brother Kim Jong and of course became.

Mean I think Sarah Huckabee Saunders one line from the White House press Catherine yesterday said at all which was you know a warning shot on on these retaliatory tariffs. Bad move one yeah I I, think that that's a? Good way to sum it up on neither side has shown much willingness to back down?

To, commodities One of the major commodities we pay attention to is copper. Because of its reputation for being the canary in, the coal mine it is in a bear market does that affect the, outlook for emerging markets yeah absolutely, that's, very bad, news, for him markets, because the relationship between copper. And the emerging market stocks is increasing not decreasing the fifty two correlation is at a, six year high remember the three biggest copper producers, in the world or imaging markets Chile Peru in China so we need copper in particular and commodities in general to.
