Just broke that North Korea has pardoned the two American Journalists detained since March.
Agreed. Apparently, North Korea specifically asked that Bill Clinton personally negotiate their release. Nice to have diplomacy back.
OH NO!!! Cover your heads, Glen Beck is about to weigh in.
Tell me about Glen Beck Ron, isn't he an American TV entertainer who maps out politics. Sorry mate I could not make the connection, as I'm stuck down here in Australia, with Camel driven internet!.
Glen Beck is an entertainer, unfortunately some right-wing radicals confuse his antics with actual political and social analysis. He won't reply directly to this thread of course, but many posters to political forums whose feet are set in right-wing ideological concrete will parrot his talking points. He has called Obama a racist among other absurdities. Prepare for comments about Bill Clinton actually being a North Korean operative; exchanging nuclear secrets for oral sex; and quid pro quos between America's first and second black presidents.
Thank you Ron, that was a very complete reply. I do like the way you cut to the chase!
Glen Beck is an entertainer like Katie Couric, Charlie Gibson, Keith Olbermann, Ed Schultz, James Carville, Bill Maher, Lesley Stahl, et al.
It doesn't surprise me since Bill was kind of a friend of theirs a while back, and they just want some attention like Mashariff got.
Well someday all this talk will backfire on Mr.Beck,hopefully he won't be arrested in another country,as the big boys will let him rot.
Do you suppose NK got exactly what they wanted out of this? (which makes it all the more likely something similar will happen again)
I guess they didn't care much for Hillary's tough love stance.
Bill's a little more charismatic I guess.
I wonder what he promised Kim for the release... and was he asked by Obama?
I am glad to hear Euna and Laura were released. However, in the name of journalism, or even wander lust as with the American hikers that were detained in Iran, I would not be taking any chances where I might accidentally cross the wrong border.
I agree sweetie pie, why take the risk. But as the real story of Laura and Euna's story comes out, my bet is that they didn't do anything wrong. They had a guide who was never arrested or detained. The guide most likely led them astray purposely. The hikers in Iran have the same type of story even though those facts are not quite clear as of yet.
I do not think any of them did anything wrong, but North Korean and Iranian officials are not exactly the most sentient beings in the world. That is why I would not take the risk going anywhere near those countries, especially if I was a political commentator.

I am not going to post the article here (but link to it for reference in case you need ideas/backup to your own interpretations).What exactly do you think Bill Clinton is doing with these (so-called) anti-Obama/pro-Romney gaffes he's been making out on the campaign trail?Whose side is he really...

He is there to negotiate the release of Laura Ling & Euna Lee. Wishing him the best and hopefully they are home with their families soon. I graduated high school with Laura Ling and this has been so horrible for all of the families involved.
