Hypocrisy: Guantanamo Torture Praised, North Korean “Labor Camp” For American Citizen Condemned

Apparently, the United States government is “outraged” at North Korea’s recent trial and sentencing of an American citizen to 15 years of “hard labor”.

GUANTANAMO BAY, CUBA - SEPTEMBER 16: (EDITORS NOTE: Image has been reviewed by the U.S. Military prior to transmission.) A U.S. military guard tower stands on the perimeter of a detainee camp at the U.S. detention center for 'enemy combatants' on September 16, 2010 in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. With attempts by the Obama administration to close the facility stalled, some 170 detainees remain at the detention center, which was opened by the Bush administration after the attacks of 9/11. The facility is run by Joint Task Force Guantanamo, located on the U.S. Naval Station at Guantanamo Bay on the southeastern coast of Cuba. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

As Intellihub.com recently reported, Kenneth Bae, or “Pae Jun-Ho” as the N. Korean government is calling him, “is standing trial for attempting to overthrow the local regime.”

According to Drudge Report, he was apparently trying to take pictures of emaciated children while leading a tour group through the “Rason Special Economic Zone”, which is kind of a “no-man’s-land” (meaning open to foreign companies) on the border of China and Russia. This story is credible because the North Koreans’ central planning has devastated the people of the country, causing mass starvation. It is no different from Mao Tse Tung’s “Great Leap Forward”, which had the same overall result: Genocide and further isolation from the rest of the world.
