    Well here he is in Pyongyang, so you're wrong already. Like to bet some cash he takes them out on that plane behind him?



    LOL, looks like that boarding ramp was made from a '62 Cadillac

    No, this is beneath her job title, but its a perfect job for a respected ambassador without portfolio.

    SEOUL, South Korea -- A South Korean news agency says former President Bill Clinton is heading to North Korea to negotiate the release of two detained American journalists.

    Yonhap news agency says Clinton is on his way to Pyongyang, citing an unidentified high-level source. Yonhap said Tuesday that when Clinton arrives he will enter negotiations to win the release of the reporters. It is not clear when he will arrive.

    The reporters, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, were sentenced in June to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally and engaging in "hostile acts."

    This is wrong in so many ways I can't even begin to started. Mr. Clinton should decline and explain to Mr. Obama that we do not negotiate with North Korea untill they release the two American's Actually if Mr. Obama had a back bone he would have made it crystal clear to North Korea that htey have two choice release them or face Military Actions.
    I think it is a bad idea to send any former president to North Korea. They got two journalist,why not add a former president to that collection?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Well, Clinton went in to NK and is expected to leave with the journalists. I guess all the chatter about this being crazy and useless was mute. Another point to Clinton.

    Go Bill, Go! I think this is a great move. He isn't part of the Obama administration. Yet he has enough respect, star power and prestige to make the North Koreans wet their pants with delight. They will milk the photo opportunity for months. All the while Obama can say it wasn't me or my people. Bill did it on his own. Even though everyone knows that is bull spit. But hey, it is all about perception.

    Here's an idea: How about we get the girls back, doing or saying whatever we have to, placating and manipulating their unsophisticated representatives and megalomaniac leader, THEN put them right back on the State Dept. ****list?

    Oh, wait a minute, that's what we are doing?

    Look at the pictures Scorpion. Kim is a star-****er who can't believe he's shaking the the hand of a U.S. President. Clinton is a shrewd negotiator/diplomat/politician. He's playing them like a Steinway.

    They're so busy nodding and smiling, thinking they won some sort of victory getting a sit-down with a former Pres., they don't realize that we could end their nuclear program in an hour if we wanted to.

    What's wrong with having our cake and eating it too? If the girls come back safely, what have we lost? Absolutely nothing!

    If they were half the badasses that they pretend to be, Clinton wouldn't step foot in N. Korea.

    Exactly, this is all about perception and star-power. We get what we want and give up nothing.

    The far-right will still have their hissy fit. After all, it was only two non-whites that we were bringing home...

    Uh oh. Clinton succeeded............
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
