    Yeah I heard that and told the wife he was a smart man. Should have kicked bodidly in the groin when he did also.

    I don't get it; was he a devoted Christian Evangelist, or did he leave something in NOKO 62 years ago?

    He fought there in the Korean war. He went there as a memory trip.
    They found out he trained some forces to infiltrate NK and decided to punish him now for it. other than that he did nothing except sightsee where he had fought in the war.
    An old man reliving his memories.

    I read the aricle, and I'm glad he was released.

    As a 20-year vet with a passion for things that fly, I'd be fascinted to see AF 2. But at this point in time, my personal politics and principles would present a distinct conflict.

    Without implying anything (since I don't know), I'd be far more interested in hearing about Mr. Newman's motive for paying (probably a lot) to fly commercially... and NOT what that grinning buffoon Joe Bidet had to say about it.
