Go North, Young Man!

Here’s a big deal out of North Korea that you won’t see on the evening news:

Senior officials of the secret police (NSA, National Security Agency) have been arrested for taking bribes to enable people to escape to China. This is unprecedented, as the NSA is considered the ultimate guardian of the North Korean government. But for the last few years, a growing number of rumors described many NSA officials as “approachable” (could be bribed.)

Not to go all Godwin on you, but that isn’t too far removed from finding out members of Hitler’s SS were helping Jews flee the country. It’s also how totalitarian dictatorships begin to crumble.
