This story has always been so difficult to swallow. I didn't realize the USS Pueblo was never given back and is now a "museum" for these gook bastards.

SENATE RESOLUTION 246--DEMANDING THE RETURN OF THE USS "PUEBLO" TO
THE UNITED STATES NAVY

"It is important to note that even to this day the capture of the USS Pueblo has resulted in no reprisal against North Korea, demonstrating remarkable restraint by the United States. Even though the USS Pueblo still clearly remains the legal property of the United States Navy, the North Korean Government has kept it on display as a sort of traveling propaganda museum."

I believe back in the 70's PBS and "Hallmark" produced a movie presentation of this illegal capture. Hal Holbrook gave a brillant portrayal of Cmdr. Lloyd Bucher.

Yep, Your right, I saw it when it was aired. Holbrook did a good job. I knew we never got the ship back but didn't know they were using it as a tourist attraction.
