#1 Can't be a true leak. Must be disinformation exercise. Cover for a real data source? Turning on the lights to see where the roaches run to?

#2 Parachuting into North Korea, no big deal. Parachuting back out again, now that really is the challenge.

#3 I have no idea if this is true, but if it isn't, I like broadcasting that we've done it and will do it again. Let's see Pudgy the Fabulous General explain how his country is being violated by those evil paratroopers.

#4 If it is true, OTOH, I DO NOT like broadcasting that we have done this.

#5 Gotta be either the stupidest leak from an incompetent administration, or (more likely) disinformation. IMHO of course.

#6 Anyway to have some faux parachutists start showing up in NKor?
Gee, I came out this morning and there were 5 parachutes on the ground, where did they come from?

#7 Well, on the positive side, at least obstables such telephone and power lines won't be much of an issue during the parachutist's descent.

#8 Gee, I came out this morning and there were 5 parachutes on the ground, where did they come from?
More importantly, can you make soup from them?

#9 Maybe the special forces guys left a few MREs behind just to be nice.

#10 I had a native American cousin who learned to speak Korean fluently when he was in the Air Force & did indeed parachute into the north. This was decades ago. He lived the life of a beggar and a thief, probably just blended in.

#11 Drop some chutes weighed down with ice -- ice melts, you get just a parachute out in the middle of nowhere. Leak juicy story to UK press, watch the fun!
