A senator asked that a Korean battle flag captured in the 19th century be traded for the USS Pueblo, taken in 1968. Republican Sen. Wayne Allard reintroduced a resolution demanding that North Korea return the Pueblo, and he sent a letter to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice suggesting she look into his proposed exchange.
USS Pueblo (AGER-2)"Since the USS Pueblo bears the name of the town of Pueblo, Colorado, many in our state want to see the vessel returned to its proper home," Allard wrote. "North Korea continues to hint at the possible return of the captured U.S. Navy ship, and I ask that you take action at this opportune time."
