Give the man a third term already!

Postby Neato Torpedo » Tue Aug 04, 2009 4:31 pm

No, not Obama. I'm talking about the hero, the legend, the famous adulterer Bill Clinton.

Laura Ling, 32, and Euna Lee, 36, were making a television documentary about North Korean refugees for former vice-president Al Gore's Current TV when they were detained on the border between North Korea and China in March.

Last month, a court in Pyongyang sentenced them to 12 years of "reform through labour" for their "grave crime". Miss Ling is reported to have told her sister in a telephone call: "Look, we violated North Korean law and we need our government to help us."

But last night they were due to fly home with Mr Clinton's party after Mr Kim issued a "special pardon" for the pair.

The former US president and the reclusive leader of North Korea engaged in a "wide-ranging exchange of views on matters of common concern", according to North Robert Gibbs, the White House press secretary, characterised the trip as a "solely private mission".

I've seriously been laughing for the last 15 minutes at the fact that Bill Clinton, America's secret diplomatic weapon, walks in and negotiates their release in just a few hours. It's like he and Hillary were playing good cop/bad cop on North Korea. Al Gore is involved in this, too, it's like a nostalgic blast from the past.

Also, John Bolton is a tremendous [mod edit]. (sorry about the thinkprogress article, can't find the quote anywhere else yet)

12 years hard labor? or letting Bill soil your dress?

Easy choice for me.

Sounds like an idea for a bad movie.
Palin has her own movie, now Bill wants in on the act.

They're deriding him and the Obama administration for "negotiating with terrorists". I mean, the alternative is two Americans going through 12 years of hard labor. If Clinton hadn't intervened, then they would've derided the Obama administration for allowing two Americans to go through 12 years of hard labor. %-6

Also, I love how they're saying that Obama wants to start a war with Iran while simultaneously talking about how he's too friendly with "terrorists". I just watch them for the entertainment value at this point, which is playing right into Murdoch's hands but whatever.
