Jimmy Carter Can Make Another Peace Deal in Korea

Make former President Jimmy Carter the special envoy to North Korea -- he says he can make a peace deal with North Korea in "half a day." In 1994, Carter did make an unprecedented visit to Pyongyang and brokered a deal that averted a war on the Korean Peninsula. The agreement (the Agreed Framework) did not come to fruition though due to mutual suspicions and missteps, and Pyongyang and Washington are still in need for a mutually-satisfactory settlement. Carter may be the person to deliver again. Carter's new book is "We Can Have Peace in the Holy Land" -- perhaps his next book can be "We Can have Peace in the Korean Peninsula."
