Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is on his way to North Korea to try to negotiate the release of two American journalists convicted by the communist state of "grave crimes," South Korea's Yonhap news agency said on Tuesday.

Fuck yeah, about damn time. I don't know what he'll do to get them back but I bet it involves a lot of Arkansas sass.

Update:

http://www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/asiapcf/08/04/nkorea.clinton/index.html
(CNN) -- North Korean President Kim Jong Il has pardoned and ordered the release of two U.S. journalists, state-run news agency KCNA said Wednesday.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/asia-pacific/8184583.stm
The officials say Mr Clinton's mission was expected to end "within a few hours" and that, if all goes well, he would fly to the US with the women on his plane, according to AP.

    Guys, I am pretty sure breaking out the journalists is just a pretense to get Bill in North Korea. The real plan is for him bond with Kim Jong-il over burgers and movies, and before we know it, there is a new announced successor for Kim-Jong-il.

    Only if he has a giant robot to fight terrorists, like all good presidents.

    Or is secretly Leslie Nielsen.

    Either is fine.

    I can't imagine he would have been sent if there was a risk of him failing to bring them back. This is most likely just theatre at this point.
