Top-Secret Papers & Spy Gadgets from U.S. Navy Ship Now Available to See—In Korea

A Navy ship captured by North Korea in 1968 during the Cold War has been opened as a museum in North Korea. The ship is riddled with bullet holes and has dirty floors and unpainted walls, a testimonial to the nightmare faced by the men on this ship, the USS Pueblo. The ship is equipped with typing and printing devices and numerous switches and gauges, as well as communication equipment from end to end.
The U.S. maintained it was an observation ship in international waters, assigned to monitor and take hold of Soviet ships. North Korea claimed it was a war ship in their territorial waters. When confronted at sea, the USS Pueblo tried to move away but could not steer clear of the North Korean torpedo boats that attacked them. The ship is the only Navy ship currently held captive. America is still attempting to secure its return.
