The forever thought-provoking anecdote of former Chicago Bulls player Dennis Rodman seems to never shy away from anything but unusual. After his seemingly successful and highly publicized visit to North Korea in early February -- where he was shooting a documentary for HBO -- the federal government decided to add another chapter to Rodman’s tale. According to the Miami Herald, the FBI is in talks of securing Rodman as an informant. Yes, Rodman -- more colorfully known for his frequent hair changes in the 90’s and his bizarre marriage to none other than himself -- is perhaps on his way to being a part of the United States government.
“I have been contacted by the FBI and I met with them. They wanted to know what went on and who’s really in charge in North Korea,” said Rodman.
Unlike his past hair choices, Rodman might not be the brightest crayon in the box but it appears he understands the magnitude of the potential situation with Kim Jong-un saying, "I'm not a total idiot. I know what Kim Jong-un is threatening to do regarding his military muscle. I hope it doesn't happen because America will take whatever actions to protect America and our allies."
"I don't condone what he does, but he's my friend," Rodman said in a March interview with North Dakota's KXJB sounding like he might be at battles with friendship.
With Rodman’s background mostly consisting of basketball plays and hot-headed rants, one question has to cross one’s mind. What exactly is Rodman’s role in all this?
“I do think, you know, that we have to talk to people who want to cause us harm so hopefully they won’t,” he said. “I’ve been talking to folks for years who don’t get what I’m about but that’s cool, because once they walk away they like me. I might be able to keep folks’ heads cool. We all going to find a way to get along and keep peace. Peace and love is where it is at, Lesley.”
This new mission should play up to Rodman’s strange past and will more than likely be a very peculiar read come his hopeful return to the country in August. This should be interesting folks.
