Was reading and watching a couple different reactions to this, including Bae's sister calmly expressing that she is upset that Rodman hinted that her brother had done something wrong without Rodman seemingly knowing what he had done. I also read in the same article "North Korea is officially an atheist state and has said religious activities were among Bae's offenses," which was the first time I heard anything about what he had done, and that is just crazy if he was sentenced to 15 years for some religious activity.

The article if curious: http://www.cnn.com/2014/01/07/world/...dennis-rodman/

And Stern talked about it too, including saying ""This one I believe was a little bit blinded by a flash of North Korean money" and believing Rodman may have been paid with counterfeit money.

Dennis Rodman has the mind of an infant. He never even answers the questions.. he just babbles on about something totally irrelevant in nonsensical rants. It's clear these guys have been given a decent wad of cash and they obviously aren't going to admit that.

that reporter is an asshole. If dennis was in N.Korea while that interview was going on.. wtf did he expect?? Was he trying to put rodman's life in danger?

Much respect to Charles Smith for speaking it clearly and calling out the asshole reporter. Even if you had good intentions and wanted to have that conversation, you do it when he's back, not when he's there. And not do it in a surprise attack.

What does Dennis have to fear? The biggest mass murderer of our generation is his close friend!

This. Imagine if it was David Stern in Rodman's spot, he would have called the reporter out on his shit after 2 minutes. If you don't belive me, just flashback to the Jim Rome interview. News outlets love when they get the chance to interview notouriosly emotional people, because that's how they can create these sound bites. Push hard enough, and wait for a person to give you headline

not to mention anything about the controversy itself, but damn Rodman does not have one single piece of coherent thought, I don't think he knows what he's even trying to say.

What is Rodman and the others doing playing a game to celebrate Kim Jong-un? Are they that poor? Really.. cultural exchange? More of a monetary exchange if anything. I really wished things would turn around for Vin..

This is a funny thread, full of people who seem more agitated by some interview then the fact that you have fellow Americans taking part celebrating Kim ****ing Jong-uns birthday.. Do they have any moral fiber in their body (if that is the expression)?

The general consensus is that people in north korea aren't mentally handicapped. they know starving isn't normal. they know that there are much richer countries in the world. in fact illegal immigration into china is a big issue for the chinese. There are were people alive from before Kim Ill Sung took power, that explained what it was like before the Kim's to the younger generation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shin_Dong-hyuk

Shin Dong-hyuk describes how he was subjected to everything from torture and starvation to forced labor. He describes how orwellian the prison camps are. He describes how female prisoners are basically subjected to rape constantly.

The largest NK prison camp has well over 100,000 political prisoners, who are often subjected to torture as punishment, and forced labor as routine.

These people are basically slaves. Sometimes slaves act like they love their masters as a survival tactic.

Rodman's presence in NK telling the NK people how respected and good Kim Jong Un is and even sing happy birthday to him, is a propaganda coup for Kim.

And he is not helping at all. The US already talks to NK through diplomatic back channels.

Its not like Rodman is visiting a guy's house while some dude is tied up in a closet and hes ignoring it. its a country with millions of people and issues that Rodman has nothing to do with

he is literally visiting a guy with hundreds of thousands of innocent people locked up. And those people are forced to perform hard labor. And the females are raped. And they are tortured. And they are starved purposefully.

Kim Jong Un is at the hitler level of evil.

He shouldnt be going to NK and shouldnt be saying Kim is a, and I quote "great guy". Kim is a mass murderer, mass torturer and has clearly by any reasonable standard performed crimes against humanity. Its like if babe ruth decided to go be friends with hitler in 1932. Babe ruth would be a horrible person, at worst and a idiot at best.

Also the people who are saying that Rodman opens up dialog are so stupid. The US constantly talks with NK diplomats through back/unofficial channels. That is how we get the deals that they constantly renege on

He comes back to America and talks about how awesome and great kim is.
