Appearing on satellite from North Korea with other former players, Rodman refused to acknowledge the status of Kenneth Bae, an American missionary who is being held prisoner in the country.

Carney added that Rodman and company traveled to North Korea on a private trip, and that as a matter of policy the United States "does not vet private travel."
