Bill Clinton Arrives in North Korea

Send in the cavalry. Bill Clinton arrived in North Korea Tuesday morning to negotiate the release of the two jailed American journalists who were caught reporting in the oppressive nation, according to a South Korean news agency. The two freelancers were working for Al Gore's Current TV when they were arrested on the wrong side of the China-North Korea border, quickly convicted of "grave crimes," and sentenced to 12 years in the dreaded North Korean labor camps. The talks come during a time of increasing tensions between the country and the U.S. over its nuclear ambitions.
