Yes, him being on a spy mission does seem to be a logical answer, especially with the disk containing sensitive information apparently being found.
However, what I still am failing to understand is the fact that the disk was found on one of the tourists and not Bae the tour guide. So why is he
being the one detained?
Oh I know our government has similar techniques of getting information. There is no American professionalism, in my opinion. Haha, I am sure Bae has
been having a difficult stay. The other thing I am failing to understand though is if he has been held for over a month why is it just coming to our
attention now? Did it take them this long to get him to confess or has North Korea been waiting for the right time to bring this up to use him as a

Like I said to repeatoffender I know things are not that great in our own country and that their are numerous problems here, such as the ones you have
mentioned. Our own jurisdiction, indeed, has many issues, but that does not mean I should just turn a blind eye to this story or any story outside our
own country and not care about it. Just because there is problems at home does not mean I should not be aware or care about problems outside.
Additionally, this whole incident/story appears shady from so many different angles that I find it hard not to get interested in it. There are so many
unanswered questions and with the previous American arrests in 2009 in North Korea it appears to be partially a political move on the chess board that
the countries of the world play on.
I do not feel that I have necessarily passed judgment on North Korea. I feel that I have brought up some legitimate questions based on the information
that has been told about this incident/story and North Korea's history. Personally, this is something I will keep my eye on.
Yes, the incident in Iran does appear to be slightly similar although Iran was never able to cough up any evidence that they were in fact spies.
Perhaps North Korea learned from this, thus one of Bae's tourists had a disk with sensitive information. Also, the hikers in Iran were detained for
over 2 years in Iran. If I am Bae I hope I get out a lot sooner that that.
In the end, I totally agree with you that the political games countries play in our stupid and diminish the likelihood of world peace from ever
happening. Such a sad world we live in today.
