Bill Clinton secures pardon for North Korean "spies"



Two female jouralists had been sentenced to twelve years in prison in North Korea. Sec. of State Hillary Clinton had previously publicly apologized. Later, Bill Clinton personally met with the dictator. These are said to have been the two conditions which the US had to meet--an apology, and a personal visit by a high-level, important person from the U.S.--to get the ladies released.

There is no doubt that the Obama administration is behind this, and they deserve credit for it. The final decision and approval, of course, had to rest with President Obama himself.

Well done. kewl_glasses

Sometimes even dictators just wanna be hugged, you know.

Took 'gnads on Bill's part to do this. Props to him for doing it.

An additional note--President Clinton did not agrandize himself. He did what was necessary for his mission, but he did not act as if he wanted to hog the spotlight as a hero. He stayed in the background while the ladies went before the press.

Congratulations to him. doffs_cap
