I am glad he is home safe. I thank him for his service to our country. Now that he has had to 'apologize' to North Korea, he needs to apologize to the United States for his utter disregard of the State Department's warning NOT to travel to North Korea. Both the risk he posed to our country and the financial cost is squarely on his shoulders.

Wendy, sounds like you want to him to be sent to a re-education camp where he can learn to respect the government's and people's wishes more? I think it was not a smart move, but I don't know that it was a huge risk to the country or cost anyone anything that would not have been working and doing whatever they were doing anyway, which is their jobs.

Welcome back! The main thing is that he is home safe. That's all that really matters. Happy Holidays Mr. Newman!
