Before “BAE” meant before anyone else in teen tech language, a U.S. citizen whose last name is Bae was held captive in North Korea. Kenneth Bae’s family welcomed his sudden release on Saturday. Bae, 46, is happy to have the last two years behind him.
According to Bae’s sister, Terri Chung, Thanksgiving will be unforgettable this year now that her brother is free. The Washington resident was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor. Fellow American, Todd Miller, 24, was also escorted home by James Clapper. The entire mission was cloaked in mystery.
Bae was born in South Korea and was jailed for allegedly plotting against the regime in North Korea. His release is something for which all Americans can be grateful. Welcome home to both of these gentlemen.
