Obama thanks Bill Clinton for North Korea mission

The two men met in the White House Situation Room for nearly 40 minutes, after which Obama invited his fellow Democrat to the Oval Office to talk for another half hour.
"Former President Clinton described the process, including a meeting with Kim Jong-il, that culminated in the North Korean leadership granting 'special amnesty' to the two journalists and permitting them to return to the United States," the White House said in a statement.
"President Obama said he was gratified that the Americans had been safely reunited with their families."

  1. Bill Clinton did a good deed in North Korea, but he's no John Ensign.
