BBC News: Reports " An American citizen has been detained in North Korea as he tried to leave the country, South Korean media say. "
Lets Get Real:
The North Koreans have a habit of this, they want the US to send a Special Envoy for talks, one would assume that they want President Clinton to visit again, he helped with the release of a hostage a few years ago. The Trump Administration should ask the former President if he will go, but he must understand that if he goes there he is not there to start talks on the nuclear build up of North Korea, Jimmy Carter did that to Clinton in 1994, thus the bad deal that allowed the North to carry on with its nuclear development. It would be a quick in and out job for the former President, if North Korea wants back channel talks it could start them through the offices of the former President.
