A Bizarre Defection
A British documentary about US Army defector James Joseph Dresnok (born1941) currently living in North Korea after having defected during the60s.
This is a very strange story. Americans defecting to Nazi Germany isstrange, but somewhat understandable. Americans sympathizing withterrorists and moving to Afghanistan is hard to understand, but itmakes sense on a certain level. This one is stranger still... defectingto a country that not only speaks a foreign tongue and has differentviews, but restricts freedom? Who purposely wants to live in a prison?And the man does not comes across as mistreated or brainwashed in anyway. Clearly something very odd happened, and he may not be completelytruthful (the tale of his first wife being a kidnap victim is a storyin itself)... who is James Dresnok?
