Dennis Rodman Says North Korea Visit Was Like A ’Party’
Dennis Rodman Works As FBI (and CIA) Informant On North Korea
Like White House court entertainer, Jay Z, was recently sent on a bizarre Pennsylvania Ave PR junket to Castro’s Cuba at the pleasure of his highness, the former NBA star-turned-transvestite, Rodman, also received special clearance from the US Federal government in order to travel freely in and out of North Korea, as part of the President’s new urban icon cultural offensive.
We are still, however, struggling to determine what sort of ‘intelligence’ these new envoys are collecting during their tours…
Dennis Rodman Says North Korea Visit Was Like A ’Party’: Spends Time On Kim Jong Un’s Private Island
By Michelle FlorCruz | IBTimes
Professional athletes, often considered celebrities in their own right, have been known to rub shoulders at swanky events with some of the world’s rich and famous. When Dennis Rodman, the former NBA champion, flew to North Korea for the second time this year, he spent his time partying with one of the world’s most infamous dictators: Kim Jong Un.
Rodman, 52, a notoriously flamboyant basketball player, has called the leader of the world’s most secretive nation, “a good friend” in the past, and even told the press “I love him,” after his first visit earlier this year. Now, it seems, their friendship has only continued to flourish. According to an interview with the Sun, Rodman described his second visit to see Kim in early September -- where he spent time on Kim’s private island -- as a “seven-star party.”
“It’s like going to Hawaii or Ibiza, but he’s the only one that lives there,” Rodman said in the interview. “He likes people to be happy around him.” It’s not a surprise that those in Kim’s most inner-circle would also experience the royal treatment. “He’s got 50 to 60 [people] around him all the time -- just normal people, drinking cocktails and laughing the whole time.”
Juxtaposed next to alleged reports of famine, nuclear weapons development and chemical weapons-testing on prisoners, Kim’s taste and budget for luxurious goods may be a surprise. For example, the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization reported in October that North Korea is one of 34 nations that still require external aid in order to feed its people.

Dennis Rodman: North Korean leader Kim Jong-un is a ’good-hearted kid’
From: | The Guardian
Kim Jong-un, the leader of North Korea, is a "good guy", a "good-hearted kid" who offers the best tequila to his guests on his private island, according to the former basketball player Dennis Rodman.
Rodman talked about his friendship with the North Korean leader in London to promote a basketball game between a Rodman-selected team and a North Korean team to coincide with Kim’s 31st birthday on 8 January.
"They need money. I’m not doing it for the money. I’m doing it to open a gap between North Korea and the world. And North Korea has a lot to offer. They want to branch out," Rodman told the Times.
"I’m not saying that the marshal of North Korea is in control. It’s the system that’s been built for years and years and years. And this young kid is trying to do one thing – to open that gap. To do something to make it work."
Rodman would not criticise Kim and emphasised that North Korea was only as bad as Japan, China or Hong Kong."I don’t care what the fuck he does over there, what he does over there, what he does over here – between me and him we’re friends. I don’t care," he said.
