[The Chosun Ilbo, September 4 2007] GNP Wants Spymaster to Resign Over Media Exposure

The Grand National Party (GNP) has called on Kim Man-bok, director of National Intelligence Service (NIS) to resign over what it says were excessive media appearances when the hostage crisis in Afghanistan came to an end.

Rep. Lee Jae-oh told a meeting of the GNP supreme leadership committee the spymaster was attempting to use the hostage crisis “as a political opportunity to pave the way for his victory in the 18th general election” next year. Kim also distributed press releases on the hostage issue.
