There's some confusion surrounding Dennis Rodman's most recent visit to North Korea and his espoused 'Basketball Diplomacy' mission. He sung Happy Birthday
(potential auto-play sound) and bowed deeply to 'Dear Leader', before his team of ex-NBA players scored 39 points to 47 against the NK team. Rodman played only in the first half and then sat next to Kim during the second half.
His team defended their visit on CNN
(includes comments by an apparently intoxicated Rodman).
With Rodman reportedly broke
, the suggestions (apologies for lack of link) that he's a State Department mole, rather than seeking a capital injection as BFF with Kim-Un are subject to speculation. Reportedly and rumoured.
(Sorry, I'm not a journalist... hoping someone with more insight can add to this FPP)
