On May 28, six members of the U.S. Congress traveled to North Korea amidst heightened tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Led by Curt Weldon (R-PA), the bipartisan Congressional group included Eliot Engle (D-NY), Jeff Miller (R-FL), Solomon Ortiz (D-TX), Sylvester Ryes (D-TX), and Joe Wilson (R-SC). As the Bush Administration continues to work towards a peaceful resolution of the nuclear issue, this trip served as a fact-finding mission to help Congress better understand the issues facing North Korea. Join us for a fascinating and rare portrait of North Korea from Congressmen Joe Wilson (R-SC) and Jeff Miller (R-FL), as they review their experiences with us.
