Merrill Newman was finally released by the North Korean government after being detained for nearly a month. This 85 year old was a military veteran of the Korean War.
"A statement published by KCNA last week said that during a recent visit to the country, Newman attempted to meet with surviving soldiers he had trained during the Korean War to fight North Korea, admitted he was "a criminal" who was involved in the killing of civilians during the 1950-53 Korean War, and carried an e-book criticizing North Korea."
Did no one in this man's family think to remind him of how naive he was being about going to North Korea knowing his past history as a Korean War veteran? I have some swamp land for sale he'll probably be interested in.
