Kim Jong Un reviews old satellite imagery despite North Korea’s new eyes in sky
NK Pro findings raise questions about operation of DPRK’s military spy satellite and sensitivity over revealing too much
North Korean military authorities showed leader Kim Jong Un what appear to be five-year-old satellite imagery of a U.S. military base last week, rather than shots taken from the DPRK’s new military spy satellite, according to NK Pro analysis.
The finding raises questions about the operation of the satellite that North Korea says is successfully snapping photos of targets in both South Korea and the U.S., while also underlining Pyongyang’s possible concerns about revealing sensitive information through such photos.
