"SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea's official news agency says leader Kim Jong Il has pardoned two American journalists and ordered their release.
[Q]



The official Korean Central News Agency said early Wednesday from Pyongyang that the order was issued following a request from former President Bill Clinton.
[Q]



Clinton flew to the North Korean capital on Tuesday on a mission to negotiate the release of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, reporters for former Vice President Al Gore's Current TV media venture."
[Q]




Nothing like a photo-op to saves some lives. I find it disturbing that these two have been jailed since March 17 and were turned into a political chip. Pleas from the families, ignored; pleas from US representation, ignored; pleas from Hilary Clinton, ignored; get a former Prez to fly there and beg, freedom. Gotta love politics.

Sounds more to me like they kept trying different things to get them released, until they finally tried a big enough thing.
