  • Some will wonder if concessions were made.

    I think it just means the North Koreans aren't that different from a toddler who throws a tantrum just to get mom's attention. They wanted attention. They got it.

  • the official word, from what I heard, is that Clinton conveyed no message from the President. I'm just glad they are free. I know one and I believe both may be moms of small kids. It broke my heart to think of them missing out on much of their kids' childhoods.

  • I think that this is great but it's not going to save the world from North Korea or any other militant country. Is Bill gonna walk into Afghanistan and get Bowe Bergdahl back? I don't think so.

  • It is good news. Why people would put down Bill Clinton when he brought the two women back with him beats me. I daresay if they were held captive in an unpleasant foreign country they would change their tune, and very quickly too.

  • I wasn't putting him down. I was honestly curious as to why HE went when he DOESN'T hold an office any longer. Why didn't Hillary go? She is the Secretary of State correct?

  • I'm glad Clinton was able to be an ambassador for the two young women. I just wonder how it happened so quickly and who else in our government talked to Kim Jong Il and his regime to free them. I thank God that they were able to leave whatever the reason. I wish more stories like this would end as happily.

  • This is ridiculous....NO ONE is questioning the obvious!!!! BILL CLINTON--FORMER president....doesn't hold any cabinet position and is not a named ambassador, went to NK, and in a matter of hours managed to secure the freedom of a couple of women who had been detained for 5 months!!!

    Obama didn't do anything! I thought he was the great talker?! WHY didn't HILLARY go/accompany her husband--you know to make it LOOK as if she had somethign to do with it. Believeing the "Official word" of the White House is akin to trusting things at face value--you're accepting what they WANT you to accept. That's funny! LOL

    Look, Bill caved to NK when he was president and took Carter along with him. You KNOW some back-door deal was made for their release...why else would they have been released all of a sudden?! Something is definitely fishy....the truth will come out eventually, it always does.

  • Did he bring along cigars? Those girls owe him BIG TIME!!! Rumor has it the plane ride home experienced a lot of turbulence.
