North Korea Releases 2 American Prisoners
Following the release of Jeffrey Fowle, North Korea has freed American detainees Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller.By Jamal Andress | November 8, 2014
The U.S. says North Korea has released detainees Kenneth Bae and Matthew Todd Miller.
The U.S. State Department put out a statement on their release saying Director of National Intelligence James Clapper "engaged on behalf of the United States in discussions with [North Korea]." The statement did not say when they would make it back to the U.S.
Very little is known about what kind of negotiations took place between Clapper and North Korean officials, but as The New York Times points out, he is not the traditional choice for such a mission.
