Washington Times: DPRK counterfeiting US $100 bills

Of course anyone reading this blog already knew this quite a few days ago when I figured this out while groking a BBC piece about some crusty old hardcore Irish commie being arrested.

The Bush administration formally has accused North Korea of manufacturing high-quality counterfeit $100 "supernotes" for the first time, according to an indictment made public yesterday as part of a 16-year probe.
"Quantities of the supernote were manufactured in, and under auspices of the government of, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea)," said the indictment of Irish national Sean Garland and six others.
