    Dennis Rodman checking himself into an alcohol rehabilitation center upon returning from a trip to North Korea was the first news all over the U.S. media, but at that time, he confirmed only to the fact that he is an addict and has never recovered from the habit. But according to a report cited by Free North Korea Radio, he was practically forced out of the hermit kingdom for his full-blown drunk and disorderly behavior. “Rodman was drunk the whole week of his stay. And the night before he left for the U.S., he was drunk unconscious, and vomited everywhere...

The U.S. Treasury Department is investigating whether he violated the law that prohibits the importing of luxury goods into North Korea.

Ambassador Rodman Improvements in U.S. - DPRK relations fostered by Dennis Rodman, unofficial Ambassador to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), succeeded beyond even the wildest of speculations. Indeed, he helped to make our relationship with the DPRK better even than our relations with many of our formerly closest allies. Although President Obama's own historic foreign policies deserve much of the credit, His limitless humility makes him delighted to share the fruits of His success with others. To proclaim His recognition of Mr. Rodman's own successful efforts, He has established diplomatic relations...

The bread being brought by Rodman to accompany the circus is allegedly in the form of luxury birthday gifts for the North Korean dictator and his wife. Rodman seems oblivous to North Korea’s near starvation of its people, human rights atrocities, gulags, and nuclear and missile adventurism, and appears equally unconcerned that providing Pyongyang with any luxury goods is a violation of the sanctions imposed by United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution 2094, adopted on March 7, 2013, and previous resolutions .....

Smith apparently thought that, with Rodman as the organizer, the goodwill tour of the communist country -- where human rights are abused and Kim recently executed his own uncle -- would go smoothly and without controversy. To which we say: Really? Smith's comments came after Rodman's latest circus -- a meltdown...

    (CNN) -- Dennis Rodman defended his visit to North Korea with a team of fellow former NBA players in a combative exchange Tuesday, saying the trip was a "great idea for the world." In an exclusive interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN's "New Day," Rodman reacted angrily when pressed on whether the group should have traveled there, given recent events in the secretive country. The trip takes place weeks after North Korea announced the purge and execution of leader Kim Jong Un's once-powerful uncle. The other former NBA players are due to play Wednesday in a basketball game on Kim's...

    Is Kim Jong-un a Puppet of Hardline Brass? Speculation is growing that hardline North Korean generals were behind the execution of leader Kim Jong-un's uncle Jang Song-taek and that Kim was merely their pawn. That would be worrying for South Korea, which would face an increased threat of military provocations. Park Hyung-joong at the Korea Institute for National Unification said Jang's purge was part of a power struggle where factions in the military that Jang had stripped of their lucrative businesses tried to regain them. Forces opposed to Jang, who was seen as a moderate, used a purported challenge to...

Rodman, who calls North Korea's young ruler his friend, returned this weekend from his second trip to the reclusive, nuclear-armed nation this year. As he passed through Beijing airport on Saturday, he remained tight-lipped about what went on during his latest visit. But he appears to have been more candid in an interview Sunday with the Guardian, a British...
