    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.

    Due to incredible advances in Iran's nuclear disarmament, diplomatic representation is necessary. 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...

    Rodman Brings Bread and Circuses to Pyongyang 8:16 AM, Jan 7, 2014 • By DENNIS P. HALPIN .... 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 .....

    Former Knick Charles Smith regrets trip to North Korea with Dennis Rodman By Kevin Manahan/NJ.com January 07, 2014 Former Knicks star Charles Smith is second-guessing his decision to travel to North Korea with Dennis Rodman to stage an exhibition basketball game to celebrate the country's leader, Kim Jong Un. 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...

The former NBA players, who arrived in Pyongyang on Monday, also include Eric "Sleepy" Floyd, guard Doug Christie and Charles D. Smith, who played for the New York Knicks.

    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...

    (CNN) -- Eccentric former basketball star Dennis Rodman may not have brought imprisoned American Kenneth Bae back with him from North Korea, but he did emerge with something that set tongues wagging: the purported name of Kim Jong Un's baby daughter. 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...

    PYONGYANG, NORTH KOREA -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman landed Tuesday in North Korea for what he called a trip to hang out with authoritarian leader Kim Jong Un, have a good time and bridge some cultural gaps — but not to be a diplomat. The trip by the flamboyant basketballer — his second to North Korea — comes days after Pyongyang rejected a visit by a U.S. envoy who had hoped to bring home an American missionary jailed there, Kenneth Bae. Speaking to reporters ahead of his flight to Pyongyang, Rodman declined to say whether he would seek Bae's...
