NKIDP is pleased to announce the release of e-Dossier No. 5, “*New Romanian
Evidence on the Blue House Raid and the USS Pueblo Incident*” and the
addition of 28 new documents to its online Digital Archive.
The e-Dossier contains 28 translated documents from Romanian archives on
two of the most serious flashpoints since the signing of the 1953 Korean
War Armistice: the failed North Korean commando attack and attempted
assassination of Park Chung Hee on January 21, 1968, commonly known as the
Blue House Raid, and North Korea’s seizure of an American intelligence
vessel, the USS *Pueblo*, on January 23, 1968.
The Romanian documents open an exciting new window into socialist bloc
policies and perspectives on the Blue House Raid and the *Pueblo* crisis.
The e-Dossier features introductions from *Mitchell Lerner*, associate
professor of history and director of the Institute for Korean Studies at
The Ohio State University and author of *The Pueblo Incident: A Spy Ship
and the Failure of American Foreign Policy* (University of Kansas Press,
2002), and *Jong-Dae Shin*, professor at the University of North Korean
Studies in Seoul.
