The USS Pueblo gives North Korea the finger

Only one US vessel is in captivity. It’s the USS Pueblo, and it’s still being held in North Korea, where it was captured in 1968.

The North Koreans kept the crew as prisoners and sent out regular photos of the men along with testimonials from them about how fantastic North Korea was. Of course, the Americans were being put up to it, and they made this clear to the folks back home by giving the North Korean photographers the finger, which the captors didn’t understand.
