    Why should Rodman take it upon himself to intervene in the Bae case? He is not there as a diplomat or an activist, he is there to play basketball. It would be completely inappropriate, not to mention dangerous, to insert himself.

    In any case, my understanding is that Bae was using his tourist trips as a cover to do covert missionary work in and around the North. What did he expect would happen when the North Koreans found out? He is lucky he wasn't shot.

    Rodman, in trouble over interview, blames drink

    http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/01/09/korea-north-rodman-idINL3N0KJ29720140109

    Jan 9 (Reuters) - Retired U.S. basketball star Dennis Rodman apologised on Thursday for suggesting that an American jailed by North Korea was himself to blame for landing in prison, adding that he was upset at the time and had been drinking........

    "I want to apologise. I take full responsibility for my actions, Rodman said in a statement issued by his American publicist.

    "It had been a very stressful day. Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates," Rodman said. "My dreams of basketball diplomacy were quickly falling apart. I had been drinking. It's not an excuse but by time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed."........

    Am I bad for thinking that Rodman has gone off the deep end?
