As mentioned earlier today, Bill Clinton made a secret visit to North Korea to meet with Kim Jong Il and to secure the freedom of imprisoned US journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling. And from that meeting good news has come, as The New York Times is reporting that both US journalists have been freed and pardoned of their crimes by Kim Jong Il and are safely on their way back to the US.

Here is video of Clinton’s arrival and departure, along with the departure of Euna Lee and Laura Ling.

Man, Bill Clinton deserves some major respect for this noble deed.
