Euna Lee and Laura Ling Pardoned

I am cautiously optimistic that Lee and Ling have been pardoned from their sentences in North Korea.

I am ecstatic for them that they have been allowed to return to their homes and their countries. I can only imagine and wonder at the immense relief that they and their friends and families must feel.

However, the cynical part of me wonders what this will cost us. What does Kim Jong-Il have up his sleeve?

On the other hand, my theory that Kim Jong-Il has really been dead for awhile and that Kim Jong-Un has really been running the show has pretty much been shot to hell since I don't believe that President Clinton would negotiate for the release of prisoners with a dead man.
