I think Rodman almost certainly has good intentions, but the more I've seen and read of what he thinks he's trying to do, the more I'm convinced that he really has no clear idea of what exactly his goals are, how, specifically, what he's doing will help to accomplish those goals, or just how horrific and toxic the cluster#*& of the regime that he's entangled himself with truly is.

Goes to a communist militant country that brought us "quan jue" on a "humanitarian effort" to showcase the NBA to the head of the problem... what could possibly go wrong?

Yeesh, that's embarrassing for him, and even more for Charles Smith since he actually has something to lose from this. Why he would want to get involved with Rodman and the North Korea issue is confounding. And Rodman has completely lost it, probably hopped up on a dangerous cocktail of drugs. I couldn't watch the entire clip because it was simply too hard to watch, but his argument about Kenneth Bae doesn't make any sense. The Kenneth Bae situation is just another example of why we shouldn't be angling for diplomacy with the North Koreans, Rodman. Stop your shenanigans before it gets worse.

no he doesn't, he's found someone with power, who idolizes him because his brother use to walk around with his jersey on. and since he yearns for relevance and attention, he tries (although absurdly unsuccessfully) to justify it. he's an ignorant clown, pandering to a murderous ignorant clown with power. I think its fitting that two re-res like this would get together.
Funny how Kim likes to have people killed on the grounds of moral corruption and blah blah blah, and is buddy buddy with a drug addict, cross-dresser who married himself as a publicity stunt. but hey, he was a hell of a rebounder.

Hopefully Rodman stays in Korea one of these trips, I'm a little disappointed in the rest though, everyone else on that list seemed like serious well educated guys, I guess money talks

Wait, is that what he was trying to convey? Does he have a legitimate reason for his opinion? Cause I can't seem to fathom one.

The way I understood it was he went to N Korea trying to get Bea back several times, and failed several times. At this point he's fed up with fielding questions about it and how he failed, which is why he keeps saying, "Ask Obama."

The same kind of damn drugs that AMERICA funds/sponsors and leaks it into the urban and Hollywood communities

so how is RODMAN held at higher level than the country he is from and lived his entire life?

if you had a clue on how AMERICA works then you would understand that half of those politics are on a hell of some type of man made drug, fact

On one hand, I get the impression that they're only doing this for Kim Jong Un, and they probably are. I doubt they have greater intentions than just putting on a show for him. And that's just weird and pointless.

On the other hand, I hope that their intentions are greater. Because I do think that any exposure from the outside, especially the country those people are brainwashed to believe are pure evil, is a good thing. It's a small step in some sort of right direction. The only way things will ever get better there is if the poor people there get any sort of exposure to what is really happening outside their bubble.

But then, this is just a private game for the leaders, right? So that whole exposure/diplomacy angle looks even weaker of an argument.


It's a very awkward situation and I don't blame these guys for having second thoughts, especially since Rodman is leading the way.

I can guarantee you that being buddy buddy/vehemently defending our #1 enemy as a good person all over the national airwaves is something that is viewed closer to "dangerous" than "good" by our Nation's leaders. America seems to take an "if you ain't with us, your against us" approach with its citizens and I think supporting our #1 enemy the way Rodman does is viewed as nothing but bad and is something that could conceivably get him killed.

Having a completely unstable and nationally recognized American citizen with such close ties to modern day Hitler should be viewed as a potential danger to our the well-being of our Nation. Who the **** knows what type of stuff this guy is putting in drugged up and unstable Rodman's head, and don't you think if there was some famous American flying over to Germany to break bread and kick it with Hitler or play golf with Saddam he would have been assassinated, jailed or at the very least prohibited from stepping foot on US Soil?

Argue semantics all you want but it wasn't too long ago you were reading things like this:


In a rather alarming section of the statement quoted by North Korean state media, the threats were “aimed at our arch-enemy, the United States.” The statement continued: "Settling accounts with the U.S. needs to be done with force, not with words.”

#1 enemy, massive threat to National Security, psychopath dictator, whatever you want to call it. You get the freakin' point.

FWIW, my buddy saw Kenny Anderson panhandling outside of a Home Depot in Nassau County, LI about 4-5 months ago. Dude is in bad shape, I googled him to see what was up after he asked me "you ever hear of an NBA player named Kenny Anderson" and apparently he lost all his dough and was actually homeless for awhile.

The sad thing is that Rodman feels he's a true ambassador. Yet the guy is too drunk/high to form a sentence, and too stupid/drunk/high to realize how terrible it makes this trip look. At least Rodman's drug issues, alcoholism and generally psychotic behavior are well documented and it's not as if many outside of the US think we endorse him.

Agreed with most here though, I couldn't make it through the whole video. Combo of nonsensical from Rodman and uncomfortable for everyone on that stage.

Agreed. Why should he be an enemy of the state? For going to North Korea? For not hating the guy? For speaking freely? However dumb it is to defend Kim Jong, he can still do it if he wants...and it's not like he's gonna be swaying public opinion here.

He's not doing this country any harm in terms of our relations with them. He's probably actually doing some tiny good. It isn't necessary, but it doesn't hurt at all. I don't really give a **** how much he love Kim Jong...whatever. He's a phony ambassador, but it's not hurting us one bit...especially not to "enemy of the state" levels.

I'm sure they definitely consider us their #1 enemy, but we have so many enemies it's hard to definitively give on the the top ranking. funny, but not really. What's also funny but not really is that Kenny Anderson story. I find it hard not to laugh at "You ever hear of a NBA player names Kenny Anderson?"

Kim Jong and North Korea are enemies of the state, and Rodman endorses the man and considers him a friend. I don't think he's a likely risk to national security, but you are the company you keep. I don't think it's outlandish to consider Rodman an enemy of the state. What North Korea has done with blatant brainwashing and fear mongering alone - at the hands of Kim and his family - is pretty disgusting. He's on the short list of truly evil people with massive power in the world.

If he had valid points and could form a sentence this might be a different conversation, but I'm giving him "harmless" enemy of the state status.


Rodman doesn't understand politics or Kenneth Bay but he is just trying to establish a friendly relationship with the country.
Judging by everything we know about Rodman, to me it feels more like an attention grab and there's probably a sprinkle of just being thrilled that somebody so powerful wants to spend time with him.

Talk about naive. Do you honestly think were happy he is "improving our relations" with a guy that has openly threatened our National Security with nuclear weapons and has shown zero willingness to "improve relations" through the proper political channels? You make it sound like were willing to get on our knees for the guy if it means he will "like us a little more" despite his threats against our country and his blatant disregard for human rights. You seem too smart to be that stupid.

The US does not want an unstable citizen hanging out with Kim Jung Un. You can pretty much take that to the bank. Rodman refuses to help the US in any way during these trips and has publicly defended the actions of this guy - how are we supposed to be so sure of what Rodman is up to over there or the ideas getting planted in his head by a savage dictator? You think the US is gonna take drugged up Rodman's word for it? Its not safe to allow a guy to go over there, hang with the enemy and come back to the US like its nothing at all. Its not all that far off from a US citizen hanging out with the leaders Al Queda on a monthly basis and coming back on US soil to enjoy our freedoms. Those guys are usually considered home grown terrorists or.....wait for it......enemies of the state.

"Its America, he can do what he wants" obviously doesn't apply when it comes to National Security or guys like Kim Jung Un who have no respect for human rights. I don't think they should simply take Rodman's word for it that this is all being done in good intentions.

Have you heard one political analyst or one politician respond to this mess in anything but straight outrage? You think our Nations leaders are happy, even in the littlest of senses, that Rodman is over there pulling this crap?

I really do think Kim Jong Un's interest with Rodman is simply as a sideshow. He's an embarrassing figure and as a 'representative' of the US simply by virtue of being the dictator's guest. And he's only doing harm to the American point of view in North Korea. How can anybody in North Korea take America seriously if the one guy there as a public figure looks like he's spent his entire time in an opium den, who's dated/married porn stars, dressed up as a woman and gotten married to himself, or whatever else is on his long list of questionable actions. The truly sad part is Rodman probably believes he's doing some good, but in actuality, he's hurting the very point of view he's set out to strengthen.

He's calling the leader of one of the most murderous regimes, who's responsible for plenty of killing, threatening nuclear war, and denying his own people the most basic of human rights a "close friend".

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that. After hearing 3 words it was clear that he was messed up. Charles Smith was actually speaking somewhat eloquently but they chose to blow him off and keep prodding Rodman. Then to ask him about would he try to intervene for the American prisoner? Who is he the president?

But Rodman fell for the bait so shame on him but the whole thing was a farce to me. It was more tmz than CNN.....

While honestly, l don't think Rodman is all that smart... l think maybe the only way to get some of our prisoners released is by sucking up to Un and saying we did something wrong. l mean this is public television.. You don't think if he said "Oh definitely, this North korean dictator is horrible for keeping him captive, lll make sure to stand up for kenneth bae" that kim jon un would have heard about it?

Rodman seems like a nut, but despite all hes said, no matter how much he defends a horrible evil, dictator... lf he can help release even one innocent person from north korean captivity then bless him. l just hope that is what he is trying to achieve and can eventually do that..

He looks like such a dumb*** too. Is there a place where he doesn't have freaking piercing?

Nah he never had anything to do with that. He's been over there previously strictly for screwing around purposes.

The media started the whole Bae angle...

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.

And...


Dennis Rodman tells TMZ ... he's going back to North Korea on August 1 to reopen the political dialogue with Kim Jong-un ... because Barack Obama "can't do s**t."

Rodman was out in L.A. yesterday when we asked about his plan to head back to DPRK to visit his tiny, little, missile-obsessed "friend" with the weird haircut.

The Worm told us he'll do everything in his power to sway Jong-un into releasing American Kenneth Bae -- who was sentenced to 15 years hard labor in North Korea for allegedly plotting to overthrow the government.

"I'm gonna try and get the guy out," Rodman said ... "It's gonna be difficult."

Then came the Obama attack -- "We got a black president [who] can't even go talk to [Jong-un] ... Obama can't do s**t, I don't know why he won't go talk to him."

A short time later, Rodman continued the anti-Obama talk -- saying, "Obama? ****** him!"

Despite all the political talk, Rodman insists, "I'm not a diplomat."

Sure pal ... just get the guy out and we'll talk.

So let me get this straight. He visits North Korea to get Bae out, gets to North Korea and no longer wants to even talk about it and rather wants to create a basketball league there instead?

Wow.


That's how you know that some serious **** went down. Prolly got threatened by "Kim" to drop it because in the Interview rodman said "do you even know what Kenneth did?"

He obviously got the bid was by Kim.

So they're trying a different approach to calm things down or whatever.

I'm not exactly on Rodman's side but just because N.Korea is the US' enemy right now doesn't mean that Rodman has to go and bad mouth them or hate them.

Just let him have his "basketball tournament" in peace. Hopefully its softens Kim's "evilness". Instead, the US is making Rodman look evil and clueless himself for nor "hating on Korea".

Sorry. Just let the man have this "relationship" and connection. It can only do us good (as long as the US doesn't demonize it).

(CNN) -- Former NBA star Dennis Rodman apologized Thursday for his much-criticized outburst about an American citizen detained in North Korea, saying he was stressed out and had been drinking when he made the remarks on CNN.

The eccentric basketball veteran is in North Korea for a controversial visit that has been rife with bizarre moments, including Rodman's rendition of "Happy Birthday" to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at a packed sports stadium on Wednesday.

In an exclusive interview Tuesday with Chris Cuomo of CNN's "New Day," Rodman provoked outrage by appearing to suggest that Kenneth Bae, who has been held in North Korea since 2012, might have done something to deserve his sentence of 15 years of hard labor.

"I want to first apologize to Kenneth Bae's family," Rodman said Thursday in a statement released by his publicist Jules Feiler. "I want to apologize to my teammates and my management team. I also want to apologize to Chris Cuomo."

Bae's family had said they were appalled by Rodman's comments about the captive American.

"He was in a position to do some good and to help advocate for Kenneth," Bae's sister, Terri Chung, said Tuesday. "He refused to do so. But then instead he has chosen to hurl these outrageous accusations against Kenneth. He clearly doesn't know anything about Kenneth, about his case. And so we were appalled by that."

"I embarrassed a lot of people," said Rodman, who traveled to North Korea with other former NBA players for a basketball game against a North Korean team. "I'm very sorry. At this point I should know better than to make political statements. I'm truly sorry."

He said the day of the interview had been "very stressful."

"Some of my teammates were leaving because of pressure from their families and business associates," he said, adding that his dream of "basketball diplomacy was quickly falling apart."

"I had been drinking," he said. "It's not an excuse but by the time the interview happened I was upset. I was overwhelmed."

That CNN guy is asking Rodman to speak against North Korea while he's in the country. What did he expect Rodman to say? That North Korea is wrong? That lunatic over there just fed his uncle to a 100 starving dogs. Way to set Rodman up for disaster CNN!

Secondly, Rodman is a complete moron and is only over there for the publicity that he always desperately craves. He should be kicked out the USA for good.
