Daily Times (Pakistan): North Korea accuses US of forging own currency

Here I am back from the planet Pesach. Speaking of other planets . . .
North Korea has charged the United States with counterfeiting its own currency and shifting the blame to Pyongyang, adding artists with “blood-shot eyes” in Japan are making cartoons attacking Pyongyang’s leaders.

A spokesman for the Ministry of People’s Security said in a statement the North had obtained “shocking evidence” Washington and Tokyo are producing false material that gives the impression Pyongyang is a criminal state, the North’s KCNA news agency said late Wednesday . . . .

The North Korean spokesman said the US Central Intelligence Agency had enlisted the help of artists in Japan to produce and distribute video tapes and CDs that falsely accuse North Korea of violating human rights and conducting illicit activity.

“The CIA and plot-breeding organisations in Japan are working with blood-shot eyes to produce animation files aimed at attacking the DPRK,” the report said.

North Korea’s public security ministry has arrested foreigners accused of working for the CIA and other foreign agencies, a ministry spokesman was quoted as saying.
