PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA – Oh North Korea did it again! No, they didn`t launch another rocket. But they`re getting the U.S. all riled up again.
Word on the street is that they`ve got a U.S. citizen in their custody, at least that`s what they`re saying. They identified the American as Bae Jun Ho.
The U.S. and North Korea don`t agree on much, but they do agree that Ho is from Washington State and is known there as Kenneth Bae.
Ho reportedly went to North Korea on November 3 to carry out a ‘tour’ — whatever that means!
North Korea claims he was detained and that there was evidence he committed unspecified crimes against the country. And they say he allegedly confessed to them.
The U.S. thinks he`s likely going to be used as a bargaining chip for North Korea in an attempt to draw the U.S. into talks.
It`s no secret that North Korea and the U.S. don`t see eye-to-eye, so we got a feeling it may be a while for these ‘talks’ to go down.
