Since joining “CBS This Morning,” which has become the Network’s most successful morning newscast in more than two decades, O’Donnell has interviewed President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden for 60 MINUTES and some of the world’s most notable figures, including Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai and the Dalai Lama.

It’s not often that a foreign film breaks through in South Korea and draws moviegoers away from the usually excellent selection of locally-made movies available to them in their cinemas.

By Sunday the action comedy will have earned a cumulative total of some $25 million, a big number for any release in the country, Korean or foreign.

As such, Treasury proposed prohibiting all U.S. financial institutions from “maintaining correspondent accounts” for or on behalf of that bank.

Treasury maintains that Bank of Dandong “acts as a conduit for North Korea” and that it has been “facilitating millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea’s WMD and ballistic missile programs,” including entities designated by the U.S. and U.N. either as proliferators or front company for proliferators.

Daneil DePetris writes in The National Interest against the forced removal of Kim Jong Un from power because “North Korea is such a black-hole in terms of human intelligence, the U.S. intelligence community wouldn’t be able to confidently assess that the man or woman (Kim’s sister, for instance) who replaces Kim wouldn’t be just as vicious or unpredictable.” Historical parallels from the USSR and China, I argue, suggest that Kim would be followed by a milder form of collective rule.

As the leaders of Japan, South Korea, the United States, and other affected countries fumble around for responses to Kim Jong Un, they lack good options.

North Korean leader Kim Jong-un tests missiles so regularly that you’ve got to start wondering whether the odd totalitarian state’s neighbors flinch as much now as they used to.
