I just heard about this a couple of minutes ago. I am not a fan of Bill Clinton at all, but this was a great thing for him to do. Credit where credit is due, good job

What a farce. This was a done deal before Clinton even got on the plane to go over there. Anyone that thinks any different has their head in the sand.

1. What were they (jouranlist) doing over there in the first place.
2. Did Al Gore sign off on them going over there?
3. What did we give up to get them back?

Way to go Bill, you did it!

Why didn't Madame Hillary go over? Isn't she Secretary of State?

Promises made...deals made.

Things we will never know.

Actually laughing Ron, because most people think Clinton had something to do with this when it should have been Hillary being the face of the backroom deal.

When the Cuban missle crisis came about and was in the eye to eye show down, backroom diplomacy through unlikely channels was employed to bring about a solution to the problem. I have no doubt that in this instance, the administration, including Hillary Clinton, were parties to this action that allowed a release of the prisoners. Is it really important who did it, how it was done or who the face behind it is? Have people become so jaded that politics matters more than humanitarian aid?

Yes, Ann, people have become jaded about it because we will never ever know the truth about what deals were made and how those deals may affect our ability to negotiate with a nut bag like this guy. Somewhere down the road backroom deals come back and bite you in the ass.

Thing is.....how will we ever know if the deal had anything to do with whatever happens next? Other than supposition?

Bill never would have gone if he didn't know the outcome ahead of time.

Their chief nutjob wanted the biggest name he could get to do the photo-op with.

Sure makes him look important in the big picture.

If the far right would have had their way, North Korea would have been blown into the stone age a few years back and then we wouldn't have had the arrest in the first place.
Nice job Bill.

First, let me say good work to all those who made this happen. Secondly, and on a much lighter note, I couldn't help but wonder what Bill was thinking would be his pay back as I viewed the photo of Willy helping the two rather attractive journalist onto his plane. But I digress.......

It's sad when folks always make every issue some right vs. left thing
why would somebody be upset that two people were released from a horrible prison sentence?

Makes me wonder if folks who are liberal are upset with themselves cause they use the right hand to play with themselves or visa versa

I think its a good thing they were released. I understand it was a private mission, but its a little strange in light of the conflict of interested presented with his wife being the Secretary of State.
