    Re: Korean Peace Treaty?

    And..... Bill gets a result:

    Bill Clinton secures 'pardon' for imprisoned journalists after meeting North Korean leader Kim Jong Il

    Bill Clinton burst back onto the global political stage today, flying to the world’s most secretive state on a spectacular mission to free two imprisoned American journalists and ease tensions on the Korean peninsula.

    His efforts quickly bore fruit. Within hours of shaking the hands of his reclusive host, Kim Jong Il, North Korea dramatically announced that the journalists, Laura Ling and Euna Lee, were free to go.

    “Kim Jong Il issued an order ...on granting a special pardon to the two American journalists who had been sentenced to hard labour in accordance with Article 103 of the Socialist Constitution and releasing them,” North Korea’s official news agency reported.

    They were believed to have flown back home on board Mr Clinton’s plane, which was reported to have left Pyongyang tonight.

    Mr Clinton’s diplomatic coup raised hopes that North Korea may soon be enticed back to multinational disarmament talks after three months of mounting tensions over Pyongyang’s nuclear weapons programme.

    I wonder what that cost us? KJ does not seem the type to give up anything for free...

    I don’t know but you can bet the Iranians are watching very closely.
