    First the Aussie government gives millions to the Clinton Foundation, now this. Thankfully the police caught this guy, but there really have been alot of problems emanating from allies of the U.S. This needs to change.

    Australian man accused of brokering North Korea missile sales

    Australian police have arrested a Sydney man accused of acting as an agent for North Korea by allegedly attempting to broker sales for Pyongyang including components used in ballistic missiles.

    "This case is like nothing we have ever seen on Australia soil," Australian Federal Police Assistant Commissioner Neil Gaughan told reporters Sunday morning. "This is black market 101."

    The suspect has been identified as a 59-year-old naturalized Australian citizen who was born in South Korea.

    Police allege the man was generating tens of millions of dollars for the Pyongyang regime by arranging the sale of missiles, components and expertise from North Korea to other international entities, and was trying to arrange the transfer of coal from the country to Indonesia and Vietnam.

    "This man was acting as a loyal agent for North Korea who believed he was acting to serve some higher patriotic purpose," Gaughan said. "I think at the end of the day he would sell whatever he could to make money back for the North Korean government."
