Jimmy Carter to Rescue Aijalon Mahli Gomes

Asia Times Online's Sunny Lee and Daily NK's Chris Green report respectively — Carter linked to Pyongyang mission and Carter Heading for Pyongyang Rescue Mission.

(I feel far less negative about this mission to save a hapless missionary than I did about Bill Clinton's mission to save two journalists who had been sent to North Korea by Al Gore.)

Yoo Ho-yeol, a professor of foreign policy at Seoul's Korea University, offered his take on a visit in the former article: "I am not sure whether Kim Jong-il would want to meet Jimmy Carter. Within a month of Carter meeting Kim Il-sung, Kim Il-sung died."
