    Is it a Plane? No

    Is it a Speeding locomotive? No

    Bill Clinton just negotiated a deal that may lead to the pardon of two jailed American Journalists who were sentenced to many years of hard labor

    Horray for Bubba! icon_lol.gif

    KJI is looking really sickly, almost dead. Hopefully.

    I hope his successor isn't as psycho or as dumb.

    I'm betting this was actually brokered through the White House and/or the State Dept., but used a high-ranking emissary to actually go to North Korea. I don't think he would have gone had this not been a done-deal.

    And it worked - the two women have been pardoned by North Korea. I assume they will be allowed to leave the country soon.

    I'm sure it'll be a family member just as psychotic.

    According to CNN news, North Korea made it explicit that they would like to speak to Bill Clinton for the negotiations. This was a relatively easy thing for the Obama administration to admit/arrange without losing face.

    The reporters should have been left there to serve the time. Now they're going to be paraded around as two heroes when they should be pistol whipped for their stupidity and blatant disregard for the law of the land.

    Stupid bitches.

    Is it a sign of how backward our country is if I admit that I watched Felix the Cat on VHS when I was a kid? icon_lol.gif

    Shame he never got to do such greatness, while he ran America, and turned the White House into a brothel. Suppose they figured if Korea did him in, it would be no loss, or if they held him for ransom, they would not ask for very much. So hay send Bill.
