The Korean War has often been called the "forgotten war" in the United States, but in North Korea it is a different story. This July 27 marked the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War, and the North Koreans invited the world's journalists, including an NBC News team, in to report on its "Victory Day" commemorations. Six buses of international journalists were shepherded around Pyongyang under the watchful eye of state minders and taken only to Korean War-related events. We were not allowed to take pictures out the bus windows of everyday street scenes.
