The sign on the table reads: The National Security Council
Defense Minister Sukampol Suwannathat tells the US Secret Service: We’ve checked it all out… There is no news on an assassination attempt against your president.
Secret Service man: From which source have you checked?
Bottom, Sukampol: From Khun Oak’s Facebook.
[Oak is nickname of Phanthongthae Shinawatra, son of Thaksin Shinawatra. The reference is to the claimed assassination attempt on Thaksin that Thaksin’s son made on his Facebook page. More about this is here: Classified Info From Thaksin’s Son]
