Gruff former general right man for Korean mission

FILE - In a Tuesday, Feb. 11, 2014 file photo, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington. The North Koreans passed word they wanted a high-ranking U.S. government official for the job, so President Barack Obama sent Clapper, a gruff former general, to spirit home two Americans held captive by the hard-line communists. Clapper is no diplomat by training, and that's perhaps just why he earned the clandestine call.
