It would verify how dastardly the North Koreans are said to be and rule out any other kind of foul play or coincidence which is kinda important in this case.

BTW...anybody care to comment on the rumor that NK hijacked the ACX Crystal autopilot and ran the tanker into the USS Fitzerald, an act of war. Perhaps things are heating up in the Far East.

I think that North Korea's rotten record on human rights is well-known already and that its reputation is pretty solid.

A downside could be that he may not have died from abuse, despite what is being claimed. Were an autopsy to confirm that, it could be a PR win for North Korea...who would play up the Great Leader's compassion in commuting his sentence.

I don't think if its a downside "he may not died from abuse". But the truth of the matter is more important than a NK PR win. Fact is an autopsy could have or should rule out some other kind of foul play; and that's why we have autopsies for the most part.

As for Otto's foolish crime he actually snuck into a off limits part of the hotel for personnel only and stole a propaganda poster meant for the staff; which fits a spy profile and maybe could get you the same 15yr sentence in this country. Not defending NK and his "crime" seems benign in comparison to Rodman getting naked and falling down drunk and peeing, puking, and pooping up and wrecking a whole floor of an hotel there.

Such are the amusements of the whacky NKs.

BTW.....do you think the Fitzerald might have also been hacked, too?

I sure don't think so. A lot of that sort of thing goes through NAVCOMSATT link. Nope, your not going to hack into a Navy Destroyers computers.

Hacked in a sense it had a stuxnet virus that spoofed its radar sight; and funny it couldn't steer away from a direct sinking hit. Seas were perfect that night, too.
