Richardson visits USS Pueblo

calls experience 'unpleasant'. Richardson in North Korea; Tours Pueblo

PYONGYANG, North Korea -- New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson on Monday toured a U.S. warship captured by North Korea in the 1960s that is now used to inspire anti-American sentiment in the reclusive communist regime.

The North Korean colonel who served as Richardson's guide smiled as he told the governor the ship was an example of continued U.S. aggression toward his country. Richardson and his traveling companion, former Veteran Affairs Secretary Anthony Principi, were then shown bullet holes circled in red paint and a video describing the maneuvering of "brazen-faced U.S. imperialists."

You have to wonder just how much diplomatic $hit the democrats are prepared to eat these days, don't you?
