Bill Clinton Trip a Success – North Korea pardons US reporters

August 4, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Not to make light of a serious situation, but if you need a guy to go off and pick up a couple of woman, Bubba Willie is your man! Former U.S. President Bill Clinton’s trip to North Korea as special envoy, to negotiate the release of two detained American journalists, appears to have been a big success. North Korea media is reporting Kim Jong Il has pardoned the two journalists, Laura Ling and Euna Lee and ordered their release.  The two were charged with unspecified “grave crime” against North Korea, and of illegally crossing into the isolated little Communist nation and were sentenced to 12 years of hard labor, with no appeal possible. They were originally detained on March 17th.   North Korean News Agency (KCNA) said in a statement: “The women’s pardon was a sign of North Korea’s “humanitarian and peace-loving policy”.  Perhaps Bill Clinton being the highest-profile American to visit since ex-secretary of state Madeleine Albright in 2000, impressed Kim Jong Il?

    President Clinton was always great at Diplomacy.I have great faith that if anyone can help this situation with North Korea, it would be President Clinton.

    Bill Clinton Takes Private Jet Abroad To Pick Up Two Women…
    In ordinary times this would be just another ordinary Headline for a typical 90’s news story. Nothing to see here people. Go home, nothing to see here! But these are not ordinary times and North Korea isn’t an ordinary threat. It’s been reported that this was a “surprise” trip. We all know this is BS. I can’t see Kim Joog Il coming out of the bathroom one morning and saying “Bill, is that you”? “I’m so surprised”!”Ah, if I’d known you were coming I’d have baked a cake”. One doesn’t travel to N. Korea in surprise fashion lest ye be shot down. So clearly the statement is false and preparations were made. Plans were in the works long enough to write Al Gore out of the script. After all, it’s Al’s network where the young ladies worked. Why didn’t he go? So bill goes to N. Korea, we get what we wanted, freedom for the two journalist, nothing more to report… except…What did Kim Jong Il get?
