For what it’s worth, Kenji Fujimoto, who’s been living in Japan since 2011 after thirteen long years of slicing and dicing for the North Korean dictator, says it’s “unbelievable and impossible” Kim Jong-un was responsible for ordering last week’s execution of his uncle Jang Song-thaek. Fujimoto was the subject of a recent GQ profile in which he rhapsodized about bro-ing out with his former employer over bootleg Schwarzenegger, and of course, that time a motorcade of black cars en route to a birthday party rolled up to fetch Fujimoto, and one of the cars was filled with “five women kidnapped from Thailand to be used as sex slaves.” [Chosun Ilbo, Earlier, Related]
