Google CEO Visits North Korea

Having already exposed practically every street corner, lamppost and cul-de-sac around the world, Google CEO Eric Schmidt just couldn’t resist visiting the planet’s most closed-off society — North Korea. Google emphasizes that this is a personal trip by Schmidt and he’s not conducting any official company business, but several Google staffers accompanied him. So did former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who has made several previous junkets to North Korea on humanitarian missions, usually to free Westerners being held hostage by the North Koreans. Publicly, the Obama Administration sought to discourage the trip, but one wonders if they gave Richardson any backdoor messages to carry to Kim Jong-un. H/T Wall Street Journal
