Could the Dennis Rodman Approach be the Key to Cracking North Korea? | Asia Society

Getting jiggy with North Korea:

Speaking favorably of Dennis Rodmans recent diplomatic visit to Pyongyang, Richardson and Gregg believe a sports envoy and Rodmans friendship with Kim Jong Un can play a role in getting Kenneth Bae — an American citizen currently serving a 15-year sentence in a labor camp for allegedly trying to overthrow the government — out of the country. “I think its going to be something unorthodox, but hopefully it will be resolved, because this man deserves to come home,” Richardson said.

Ambassador Gregg, who spent 30 years with the CIA, called North Korea “the longest-running failure in the history of American espionage.” Despite recent belligerent rhetoric, Gregg believes the U.S. should reach out to North Korea and seek a diplomatic and peaceful dialogue because the U.S.-North Korea relationship is “key to denuclearization and stability in the whole region.”
