North Korea pardons imprisoned journalists

After the right-wing regime in North Korea imposed sentences of 12 years of hard labor on 2 American journalists who were accused of illegal entering the country, the reporters have now been pardoned and released.

The pardon came during an independent humanitarian mission by Bill Clinton.

I'm almost inclined to take back my criticism of Clinton over his charge to the far right in the '96 campaign. You have to give Clinton credit for taking the time and effort to ensure the journalists' release.

Bush never lifted a finger to help Americans who were in trouble abroad. Even as President, Clinton had a much better record in that regard than Bush ever did.

I'm glad the grownups are finally back in charge of America.
