Be it ever so humble…..
Laura Ling and Euna Lee had the surprise of their lives 30 hours ago. They walked through a double door and saw former President Bill Clinton on the other side. It could only mean one thing these two intrepid (foolish) reporters were on their way home. With a few valuable lessons under their belt: a) don’t wander to close to borders that have no diplomatic ties to the United States and b) fairy god fathers and god mothers can only arrange one miracle in a lifetime.
Many people think that this was a Bill Clinton moment and it was, but he was the point of the spear. The shaft, the binding and the aim was built entirely by the Obama Administration and a savvy Sectary of State Hillary Clinton. It only goes to show you that the old adage “Keep your friends close, but your enemies’ closer.” works in the world of politics and international relations.
Now, on to the Iran problem... Who’s up to bat?
