Journalists Laura Ling & Euna Lee Released from North Korea

This was a very scary situation and I am so glad to hear Luara Ling and Euna Lee have been released from the communist country. They had been held captive in North Korea for the past 5 months. Can you imagine the fear of being held in a foreign country??? Crazy. Laura Ling says they were two women who feared they could be sent to a labor camp at any moment. Imagine the releif they felt when they were taken to a room Tuesday and saw former President Bill Clinton! GO BILL!!! This is why we love this man! It has been reported that the reporters were granted a pardon by North Korea on Tuesday, following rare talks between Clinton and the reclusive leader Kim Jong Il. They had been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally. Wow. Thank God they are home.

  1. Kim Jong Il used these women as pawns to meet with Bill Clinton whom he wanted to meet with for years. He's an idiot. Thank God they are home
