    Apparently Manning broke the law. He plead guilty. There's no whistle blower exception to passing classified documents. That's probably a good thing, since warfare is by its nature an ugly business.

So I don't have a problem with what Rodman said, at least at this point. I do wonder if his trip was a genuine attempt at some sort of diplomacy or information gathering though. If it was, then it would make sense for Rodman to praise Kim Jung Un since he appears to be the one guy the dictator likes a lot.

    My impression of Kim hasn't changed much. He seems like almost every other dictator. He's spoiled and contradictory. He preaches one thing to his people and does the exact opposite in his personal life. I will say though that he may have created conflict within his own country by having so much public fun with Rodman. North Korea is supposed to hate the United States and the more public NK's leaders display admiration for Americans, the more they undermine their authority.
    It would be pretty funny and not at all surprising if Rodman turned around and blasted KJU and NK when he got home.

    Let's see now. The only one showing his teeth in the photo is the one educated in the USA. Everybody else showing off fair skin and healthy weights. "Smile for the camera," even if you're sitting in a steaming pile of donkey dung. Only in the USA.

    Kim Jong Un? he's been largely handled and programmed his whole life. we can all claim that we would do differently under the same circumstances, but none of us can prove it. he likes basketball, and that's heartwarming, but he needs to get off of his ass and concentrate on bringing resources to his country instead of Iranian nuclear scientists to spend money on a bomb that will be national suicide if ever used. the DPRK is a tumor, and the world recognizes it as such. if it ever becomes malignant, the global immune system will kick into gear, and we'll all suffer a painful convalescence.

    I hope he decides to concentrate on food and basketball rather than war and oppression.

    I think you just summed it up beautifully.

    Kim Jong Il to Kim Jong Un just like Bush to Baby Bush, eh?

    Will the fact that Kim is ordinary crash his Demon image in the USA press?
    This doesn't change anything. Rodman didn't see the real DPRK, because he wasn't allowed to. All this "good press" while the DPRK still tests nuclear weapons, builds more ICBMs, and still keeps his own people locked away in death camps like Haengyong (More commonly known in the States as Camp 22), and still antagonizes South Korea and Japan. **** the DPRK, and **** Kim Jong Un.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Rodman looked like a shish kabob, but hey, he could be Sec State, and we might not miss Kerry.

    Let's see now, torture, Guantanamo, kangaroo courts are OK. We only invaded North Korea once so they shouldn't be building weapons to defend from us just because we cover the Southern half of their penninsula like a blanket. We attack people without 'Nukes', like Vietnam, Granada, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Nicaragua(contras), Panama, and the list goes on, but we don't attack countries with nukes. Not so subliminal message, get y'all some nukes, mos' scratchee! It's not Iran that has helped NKorea get its' Nukes working, but our great ally Pakistan and their uber hero A. Q. Khan. That's the same A. Q. Khan that offered Libya help for its' discontinued Nuke program and look what happened to Libya. Is there a message here?
