Via the AP:  NKorea’s Kim makes son 4-star general

North Korea’s Kim Jong Il made his mysterious youngest son a four-star general in a major promotion seen Tuesday as confirmation that he is slated to become the country’s next leader.


It was the North Korean state media’s first mention of Kim Jong Un, who has remained so well hidden from the outside world that not even his face or exact age can be confirmed. He is believed to be 27 or 28, and is said to have been schooled in Switzerland and educated at KimIl Sung Military University in Pyongyang.

But don’t worry:  an extensive search and interview process was undertaken, but it just so happened that the best candidate for the job was under their noses all the while!
