Former Washington Post

North Korea, two remain

Mentor to Watergate
reporters remembered
for strong leadership
WASHINGTON (AP) - In a
charmed life of newspapering,
Ben Bradlee seemed always to
be in just the right place.
The raspy-voiced, hard-
charging editor who invigo-
rated The Washington Post got
an early break as a journalist
thanks to his friendship with
one president, John F. Kennedy,
and became famous for his role
in toppling another, Richard
Nixon, in the Watergate scan-
dal.
Bradlee died at home Tues-
day of natural causes, the Post
reported. He was 93.
Ever the newsman and ever
one to challenge conventional
wisdom, Bradlee imagined his
own obituary years earlier and
found something within it to
H-m

quibble over.
"Bet me that when I die,"
he wrote in his 1995 memoir,
"there will be something in my
obit about how The Washing-
ton Post 'won' 18 Pulitzer prizes
while Bradlee was editor." That,
he said, would be bunk. The
prizes are overrated and sus-
pect, he wrote, and it's largely
reporters, not newspapers or
their editors, who deserve the
credit.
Yet the Post's Pulitzer-win-
ning coverage of the Watergate
scandal is an inextricable part
of Bradlee's legacy, and one
measure of his success in trans-
forming the Post from a sleepy
hometown paper into a great
national one.
As managing editor first and
later as executive editor, Bra-
dlee engineered the Post's rein-
vention, bringing in a cast of
talented journalists and set ting
editorial standards that brought
the paper new respect.
5-m

When Bradlee retired from
the Post newsroom in 1991,
then-publisher Donald Graham
said: "Thank God the person
making decisions in the last 26
years showed us how to do it
with verve and with guts and
with zest for the big story and
for the little story."
With Watergate, Bradlee
himself became a big part of a
story that epitomized the glory
days of newspapers - back
before web sites, cable chatter
and bloggers drove the talk of
the day.
Actor Jason Robards turned
Bradlee into a box-office hit
with his Oscar-winning por-
trayal of the editor in the 1976
movie "All the President's Men,"
which recounted the unraveling
of Watergate under the report-
ing of Bob Woodward and Carl
Bernstein. Bradlee's marriage
in 1978 to Post star reporter
Sally Quinn (his third) added
more glamour to his image.
He was one of the few to
know the identity early on of
the celebrated Watergate source
dubbed Deep Throat, revealed
publicly in 2005 to be FBI offi-
cial W. Mark Felt.
"I think he did a great service
to society," Bradlee said after
Felt's role finally came out.
In enduring partnership with
publisher Katharine Graham,
Bradlee took a stand for press
freedom in 1971 by going for-
ward with publication of the
Pentagon Papers, a secret study
of the Vietnam War broken by
The New York Times, against
the advice of lawyers and the
entreaties of top government
officials. The ensuing legal
battle went all the way to the
Supreme Court, which upheld
the right of newspapers to pub-
lish the leaked papers.
The Post's decision to publish
helped pave the way for all of
the smaller, difficult ones that
collectively produced the news-
paper's groundbreaking cover-
age of Watergate.

Ohio resident
returns to U.S. after
awaiting trial for
six months
WASHINGTON (AP)-Amer-
ican detainee Jeffrey Fowle has
been released from North Korea,
nearly six months after he was
taken into custody on charges
of leaving a Bible in a nightclub,
the State Department said Tues-
day. Two other Americans who
have been tried and convicted of
crimes in North Korea are still
being held.
Fowle, 56, of Miamisburg,
Ohio, had been awaiting trial
on charges of leaving a Bible at
a nightclub in the northern port
city of Chongjin last May. He
was flown out of North Korea on
a U.S. government jet that was
spotted Tuesday by Associated
Press journalists at Pyongyang's
international airport. The Swed-
ish government helped negotiate
Fowle's release.
State Department deputy
spokeswoman Marie Harf said
the plane took Fowle to Guam on
its way to the United States. She
said that Fowle had been evalu-
ated by a doctor and appeared to
be in good health.
White House spokesman
Josh Earnest said it was a posi-
tive decision by North Korea to
release Fowle. He urged Pyong-
yang to release the other Ameri-
cans, Kenneth Bae and Matthew
Miller.
"The U.S. will continue to
work actively on them," he said.
Washington announced
Fowle's release even before his
family's attorney had been noti-
fied. "We are overwhelmed with
excitement but still want com-
plete confirmation," attorney
Timothy N. Tepe said in a state-
ment.
Earnest said the Defense
Department had provided trans-
portation to Fowle on a schedule
that the North had specified. He

said Sweden had helped facili-
tate Fowle's release. The U.S.
doesn't have formal diplomatic
relations with North Korea.
Harf said Fowle was on his
way home to his family.- "We
welcome the DPRK's decision to
release him," she said in a state-
ment, using the abbreviation for
the Democratic People's Repub-
lic of Korea.
Harf also thanked Sweden for
"tireless efforts" by its embassy
in Pyongyang. She provided no
other details about the Swedish
government's involvement.
Washington has repeatedly
tried to send a high-level repre-
sentative to North Korea to seek
release of the three men. Pyong-
yang had refused as recently as
last month, according to Rob-
ert King, the U.S. special envoy
for North Korean human rights
issues.
The three Americans entered
North Korea separately. In inter-
views last month with the AP, all
three said they believed the only
solution to their situation was
for a U.S. representative to come
to North Korea to make a direct
appeal.
Fowle arrived in North Korea
on April 29 and was arrested in
May for leaving a Bible at the
nightclub. Christian evangelism
is considered a crime in North
Korea. Fowle is an equipment
operator for the city of Moraine,
Ohio, and has a wife and three
children. His wife is from Russia
and had made a written appeal
on her husband's behalf to Rus-
sian President Vladimir Putin.
The other detained men are:
-Matthew Miller, 24, from
Bakersfield, California. Miller
was convicted Sept. 14 of enter-
ing North Korea illegally to com-
mit espionage and sentenced to
six years of hard labor. At his
90-minute trial, North Korea's
Supreme Court said he tore up
his tourist visa at Pyongyang's
airport upon arrival on April 10
and admitted to having the "wild
ambition" of experiencing pris-
on life so that he could secret-

ly investigate North Korea's
human rights situation. In Late
September, he spoke briefly to
an AP journalist at a Pyongyang
hotel where the North Korean
government allowed him to call
his family. He said he was dig-
ging in fields eight hours a day
and being kept in isolation, but
so far his health wasn't deterio-
rating.
Kenneth Bae, 46, of Lynwood,
Washington. Bae is a Korean-
American missionary who is
serving a 15-year sentence for
alleged and unspecified "hos-
tile acts." He was arrested in
November 2012 while leading
a tour group in a special North
Korean economic zone. Pyong-
yang accused Bae of smuggling
in inflammatory literature and
trying to establish a base for
anti-government activities at
a border city hotel. His sister
believes Bae's Christian faith
got him into trouble. In recent
interviews with The AP, Bae said
his trial lasted no more than 90
minutes and is suffering from
chronic health problems, includ-
ing back pain. His family also
says his suffers from diabetes,
an enlarged heart and liver prob-
lems. He has said he feels aban-
doned bythe U.S. government.
In 2009, North Korea
detained two American jour-
nalists, Laura Ling and Euna
Lee, who were later freed after
former U.S. President Bill Clin-
ton visited Pyongyang. In 2011,
former President Jimmy Carter
came to North Korea to win the
release of imprisoned American
Aijalon Gomes, who had been
sentenced to eight years of hard
labor for crossing illegally into
North Korea from China.
Korea has previously used
detained Americans as leverage
in its standoff with the U.S. over
its nuclear and missile programs,
a charge that Pyongyang denies.
But Washington also has
floated the possibility of a dip-
lomatic opening in ties between
the two countries should North
Korea free the detainees.
