The notion of not wanting to queer any deals with the bizarre
kleptocracy that runs North Korea is obvious, but, ever since Lee and
Ling were abducted/arrested March, Current TV has come under scrutiny for circling the wagons and behaving with a level of secrecy unbecoming for an American media organization. As I write this, you can read of Clinton's visit to Pyongyang on every Web site in the realm -- but not on Current TV's. You can check out this Current TV story about an enraged wife who glued her husband's penis to his stomach in retaliation for his dalliances, however. This is not a veiled Clinton reference.
We don't ask for much. A nod, a shrug, a "We don't know any more than you do" would have been enough. You know -- human behavior.
We look forward to reading Current TV's exclusive interviews with Lee and Ling upon their release -- and soon.
