Saudi Arabia, an official U.S. ally, is killing hundreds of children in neighboring Yemen -- and U.S. President Barack Obama still wants to sell them a massive package of weapons worth more than $1 billion, with no questions asked.

Borderless News Online caught up with author and investigative journalist Suki Kim, who went undercover as a university professor in North Korea’s most elite university, where over 200 sons of the nation’s top families were being groomed to be the country’s future leaders.

She wrote about the experience in her book "Without You, There Is No US: My Time with the Sons of North Korea's Elite," an investigation into a world where few outsiders have ever had that kind of access.
