Dennis Rodman Asks Kim Jong Un To Let U.S. Citizen Go

If any American has the power of persuasion over North Korea’s defiant young ruler, it might be eccentric ex-basketball star Dennis Rodman.

So when Rodman digitally called for Kim Jong Un to release U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, he may have a shot at a response.

“I’m calling on the Supreme Leader of North Korea or as I call him “Kim”, to do me a solid and cut Kenneth Bae loose,” Rodman tweeted.

Bae was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor last month after he was convicted of unspecified “hostile acts” against North Korea. The country’s state-run Korean Central News Agency said the Korean-American was arrested November 3 after arriving as a tourist in Rason City, a northeastern port near the Chinese border.
