Thank you to veteran journalist and author Donald Kirk for this timely piece and for the link to this site:
Yes, three American hostages arrived back in the United States this morning, and President Donald Trump was at Andrews Air Force base at 2:30 a.m. to welcome them home. Trump thanked the hostage taker, North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un, profusely. Trump did everything short of announce “peace in our time.”
But, shhh! Don’t mention “human rights” when talking to the North Koreans. Don’t breathe the words in events involving North Koreans. And don’t even think about raising the issue in a summit with Kim Jong Un.
