The White House confirmed on Monday that former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is traveling to North Korea, but sought to distance itself from his visit, calling it a private trip.
Carter had previously announced that he was planning on traveling to North Korea in an effort to secure the release of American citizen Kenneth Bae, who is being held by the regime.

Tell them to turn their thermostats down and wear sweaters, Jimmy.
Nothing private about the trip. Everything that failed marxist does is political.

Is he planning to defect?
Probably the happiest thing would be for the Norks to hold Jimmuh “hostage” to demand concessions from the US. Maybe even to create an embarrassing show trial of Jimmuh as a “war criminal”, for some imagined slight.

Two small minds meeting, the result will not be an increase in intelligence, rather a dimming of the Whole of North Korea.

Please let them keep him.
They could give him a job as tour guide aboard the U.S.S. Pueblo. Jimmy would probably like that, being ex-navy and all.

No private U.S. citizen goes to North Korea without an official entry visa from the Norks.
The ol’ fixaroo was in from the get go courtesy of the WH.
Jimmah Carter stirs up hatred wherever he goes. I’ll bet the ROK Army is on high alert while he is there. Wonder just what ideas he’ll be feeding to the little riceball dictator in Pyongyang.
