What a fiasco! - Private Citizen Bill Clinton frees American journalists from North Korea.
What's the world coming to?
Rumor has it he actually MET with Kim Jong Il - talk about appeasement!
John Bolton is correctly outraged.
"It comes perilously close to negotiating with terrorists," Bolton told AFP when asked about Bill Clinton's trip to secure the release of journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee."I'm pretty sure Bolton would have preferred we launch a nuclear attack on Pyongyang.
A digression: in the area of domestic policy, conservatives have a very good grasp of argument & rhetoric - the object of arguing is to win, and 'winning' means getting what you want. They're quite good at this.
Why can't they generalize this to foreign policy? The object is to get what you want. In this case, the U.S. wanted North Korea to release the two journalists. North Korea released 'em. We won!
