Another Obama Obfuscation

Regardless of how good you think Bill Clinton is at throwing the bs around, no rational person can believe he brokered a deal for the release of 2 women from North Korea. Also, no rational person can accept the White House bs, as shoveled by Baghdad Bob Gibbs, that this was a "solely private mission to secure the release of two Americans."

"Clinton expressed words of sincere apology to Kim Jong Il for the hostile acts committed by the two American journalists against the DPRK after illegally intruding into it," North Korea's state-run KCNA news agency reported.

KCNA also said "the meetings had candid and in-depth discussions on the pending issues between the DPRK and the U.S. in a sincere atmosphere and reached a consensus of views on seeking a negotiated settlement of them."

The report said Clinton then conveyed a message from Obama "expressing profound thanks for this and reflecting views on ways of improving the relations between the two countries."

Why then did Baghdad Bob Gibbs tell reporters before the announced agreement that Clinton was not carrying any message from Obama.?

Gibbs also claimed Clinton last spoke with Obama during a White House visit in March.

As for an apology from Slick Willie..."That is not true," Hillary Clinton said. "That did not occur."

Personally, I find north Korea easier to believe on this one.
