Captured Journalists Freed From North Korea Thanks To President Clinton

In an almost Jack Bauer-like 20-hour negotiation effort with the North Koreans, President Bill Clinton managed to get the two American journalists, who were sentenced to 12 years in a hard labor camp in June, freed. Ok, maybe he isn’t Jack Bauer since he didn’t kill anyone, but President Clinton sure has got the ultimate ninja-diplomatic negotiation skills. I couldn’t see former President Bush do anything like that!

    Hahaha! Jack Bauer’s kind of CIA torture is so classic and old-school! His punch-and-yell-emotionally-at-the-villains-style is way preferable to sinister needles full of paralyzing chemicals kind of torture!

    “I’ll do the best that I caaaan.”

    Kiefer Sutherland does this thing with his “aaan”s. They are quite long.

    Funny because Bush was completely against any type of negotiation efforts with North Korea. President Clinton’s ninja-skills of diplomacy came in handy.
