North Korea Spy Satellite North Korea successfully placed its spy satellite in space some time ago. Now North Korea has claimed that it is monitoring the Pentagon and the White House through its spy satellite. They say that the spy satellite is taking pictures of the Pentagon and the White House and sending them to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
The new spy satellite launched by North Korea is sending pictures of the White House and the Pentagon to Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un.
North Korea claimed its first spy satellite, launched into orbit last week, has captured images of the White House, the Pentagon, and nearby US naval stations.
Major US sites have joined the list of areas North Korea claims to have photographed using its probe launched on November 21.
State official media said leader Kim Jong Un had viewed the new photos alongside previous photos of Andersen Air Force Base in Guam, Pearl Harbor, and the US Navy’s Carl Vinson aircraft carrier.
After an unsuccessful launch earlier this year, South Korea managed to salvage one of North Korea’s spy satellites and determined that the technology held minimal military significance. Although Seoul thinks any satellite from North Korea would be primitive, this technology could aid Kim’s regime in its targeting as it improves the ability to launch a nuclear attack.
There has been no confirmation from the outside world about whether the satellite is operational or not, and North Korea has not yet released any images taken by its new satellite to the outside world.
A White House National Security Council spokesman said the US could not independently verify the North Korean claim.
The spokesperson said the US condemns the launch of a space launch vehicle using ballistic missile technology and calls it a violation of several UN Security Council resolutions.
North Korea has a history of being arrogant when it comes to satellite claims. O!
Under the leadership of Kim Jong Il – the current leader’s father – North Korea had said it had placed a satellite in orbit playing revolutionary songs, only for Washington to say the probe was likely at the bottom of the ocean.
