Basketball diplomacy: Dennis Rodman returns to North Korea

Dennis Rodman continues to be a star at basketball diplomacy.

The former athlete returned to North Korea today for the second time this year, raising speculation he may be trying to negotiate the release of jailed american, Kenneth Bae.

But walking through the Beijing airport, Rodman insisted his trip is all about basketball and visiting his "friend," North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un.

Outfront tonight is Gordon Chang, an expert on North Korea and the author of "Nuclear Showdown: North Korea takes on the world."
