Ling and Lee Reportedly Released

Great news!

Kim Jong Il is reportedly going to pardon and release the two U.S. journalists, Euna Lee and Laura Ling, who have been held custody in North Korea since May of this year. They were given a 12 year sentence to prison in June on the charges of illegally entering the country for a smear campaign. Former U.S. President Bill Clinton met with Kim Jong Il in Pyongyang today and based on their meeting, the announcement that Ling and Lee will be released has been made.
