Obama Visits DMZ

Obama at the DMZ, looking to N. Korea

Obama is visiting US troops today (March 25 in Seoul) in the DMZ (demilitarized zone between North Korea and South Korea). See his schedule in Seoul. Obama is attending the Nuclear Security Summit. Background on the summit. Not many in the media have mentioned it (except for Rachel Maddow as far as I can tell), but the summit is an Obama initiative. Even as Senator, Obama worked to round up loose nukes.

Obama's arrival, the long version (for those who like to watch AF1 touchdown.)

Here's a bit about one of the most dangerous places in the world.

Obama in DMZ looks out to North Korea, or what the US calls "propaganda village," according to Jake Tapper at ABC.
