Yesterday CBS News aired an interview with James Clapper, the U.S. Director of National Intelligence, who recently returned from North Korea along with two American citizens who had been imprisoned there.
It is extremely rare for a currently-serving government official to visit North Korea, and while Clapper does not discuss North Korea's treatment of Christians in this interview, his comments offer insights into the nation where thousands of our brothers and sisters are currently held in political-prisoner camps:
We are thankful for the release of these two Americans and their chance to be reunited with their families. We pray this same blessing will be realized by our Christian brothers and sisters inside North Korea's prisons: that they may be released and reunited with their families as well. Pray with us for the nation of North Korea.
