Who need it.
The Navy certainly wouldn't want the ship back at the expense of humiliating the United States.
It was obsolete when it occured, and of no value today.

Sent defenseless on an intelligence-gathering mission off the North Korean coast, and given no help after North Korean torpedo boats mounted an attack, the Pueblo became on Jan. 23, 1968, the first U.S. warship captured since a British ship forced the USS Chesapeake to surrender off the Virginia capes in 1807.
First off, the Pueblo was NOT a warship..
I half expected to see this in the hit piece:
"And it was Bush's Fault it has stayed captured."

That ship is still active duty, that is it's never been decommissioned and because of this fact it's still sovereign US territory.

How about we send Norman Schwartzkopf, American military governor of the liberated north of Unite Korea?
This whole thing is stupid.....I say ignore the North Koreans on this, they are scraping the bottom of the barrell for ineffective tactics.
Keep building missle defenses.
Would it be great to drop a precision guided missile right through the center of the Pueblo and show them just how much the Pueblo means to America?

It's not worth once teaspoon of US prestige. Especially since we were so humiliated the first time around.
