U.S. journalists return from N. Korea

Two American journalists jubilantly reunited with family and friends early Wednesday upon returning to the United States with former President Bill Clinton, whose diplomatic trip to North Korea secured their release nearly five months after their arrests. The jet carrying Euna Lee and Laura Ling, reporters for Al Gore's San Francisco-based Current TV, and Clinton arrived at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport at dawn. Clinton met with communist leader Kim Jong Il on Tuesday to secure the women's release.

U.S. President Barack Obama’s visits Moscow

” Russia's Dmitry Medvedev hailed Barack Obama as "my new comrade" Thursday after their first face-to-face talks, saying the US president "can listen" -- even if little progress was made on substance. If Obama is able to manage the unprecedented challenges facing him, and if luck goes his way, he has a chance of becoming one of the greatest presidents in U.S. history.

Obama more agressive against al Qaeda

6:08 AM 0 Responses
President Obama's top counterterrorism adviser Thursday vowed the U.S. would defeat al Qaeda and declared the president has urged him to be more aggressive in destroying the terrorist organization.

White House adviser John Brennan says al Qaeda is seriously damaged but resilient. John Brennan, Obama's senior adviser on counterterrorism and homeland security, projected an assertive stance toward the battle against al Qaeda -- which Brennan said "remains the most serious threat" the U.S. faces -- and al Qaeda's allies in Afghanistan and Pakistan.


He made clear that predator drone attacks would continue, while minimizing collateral damage that enemies can exploit for propaganda. "President Obama is under no illusions about the imminence and severity of this threat," Brennan told a gathering at a Washington think tank.
Brennan said the president's strategy starts with pushing the Taliban out of key population areas in Afghanistan.


"Not only has he approved these operations, he has encouraged us to be even more aggressive, even more proactive, and even more innovative to seek out new ways and new opportunities for taking down these terrorists before they can kill more innocent men, women, and children," Brennan said.

Brennan said al Qaeda "has been seriously damaged and forced to replace many of its top-tier leadership with less experienced and less capable individuals."
"Nevertheless," he said, "al Qaeda has proven to be adaptive and highly resilient and remains the most serious terrorist threat we face as a nation."
Brennan said the aggressive immediate campaign to destroy al Qaeda must be coupled with a longer-term plan to confront violent extremism generally. He said that includes economic help to restore legitimate institutions.

"In Afghanistan this means a dramatic increase in our development efforts. ... In Pakistan it means $1.5 billion in direct support every year for education, health care and infrastructure," Brennan said.

Brennan said closing the prison camp at the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, will help in combating terror recruitment.

He stopped short of an iron-clad promise that the prison would be entirely empty by January.
"It is our full intention to close it down to meet the deadline," Brennan said. However, he added that it is unknowable whether detainees will still be there in January.

U.S. journalists return from N. Korea

4:05 PM 0 Responses
Two American journalists jubilantly reunited with family and friends early Wednesday upon returning to the United States with former President Bill Clinton, whose diplomatic trip to North Korea secured their release nearly five months after their arrests.
The jet carrying Euna Lee and Laura Ling, reporters for Al Gore's San Francisco-based Current TV, and Clinton arrived at Burbank's Bob Hope Airport at dawn. Clinton met with communist leader Kim Jong Il on Tuesday to secure the women's release.
Lee emerged from the jetliner first and was greeted by husband Michael Saldate and 4-year-old daughter Hana. She hugged the girl and picked her up before all three embraced in a crushing hug as TV networks beamed the poignant moment live.Ling embraced her husband, Iain Clayton, as teary family members crowded around."
The past 140 days have been the most difficult, heart-wrenching days of our lives," Ling said, her voice cracking.Thirty hours ago, Ling said, "We feared that any moment we could be sent to a hard labor camp."Then, she said, they were taken to another location.
"When we walked through the doors, we saw standing before us President Bill Clinton," she said to applause. "We were shocked but we knew instantly in our hearts that the nightmare of our lives was finally coming to an end, and now we stand here, home and free."Clinton came down the stairs to applause.
He hugged Gore, then chatted with family members.Gore described the families of the two women as "unbelievable, passionate, involved, committed, innovative.""Hana's been a great girl while you were gone," he told Lee. "And Laura, your mom's been making your special soup for two days now."He also thanked the State Department for its help in the release.
"It speaks well of our country that when two American citizens are in harm's way, that so many people will just put things aside and just go to work to make sure that this has had a happy ending," he said.After 140 days in custody, the reporters were granted a pardon by North Korea on Tuesday, following rare talks between Clinton and the reclusive North Korea leader. They had been sentenced to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally.The women were kept in enforced isolation and fed poor-quality food, Ling's sister said."They were kept apart most of the time. ...
On the day of their trial, they hugged each other and that was it," Lisa Ling told reporters outside her sister's home in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles."She's really, really anxious to have fresh fruit and fresh food. She said there were rocks in her rice. Obviously, it's a country that has a lot of economic problems."The little bit that she was able to recount of her experience of the last 4 1/2 months has been challenging for us to hear," Lisa Ling said. "She's my little sister but she's a very, very strong girl and a determined person." Ling's husband told reporters that his wife had spent more time in North Korea than in their North Hollywood home, which they bought in November shortly before she went overseas. "It was very lonely," Clayton said.
"One of the hardest things was obviously coming home every night, and there were reminders of her in the house." The women, dressed in short-sleeved shirts and jeans, appeared healthy as they prepared to leave North Korea. They shook hands with Clinton before getting into the jet, exclusive APTN footage from Pyongyang showed. Clinton waved, put his hand over his heart and then saluted. North Korean state TV showed Clinton's departure, and North Korean officials waving to the plane, but did not show images of the two journalists.
Speaking on the White House lawn just before leaving on a trip to Indiana, President Barack Obama said the administration is "extraordinarily relieved" that the pair has been set free. He said he had spoken to their families once the two were safely aboard a plane out of Pyongyang. "The reunion we've all seen on television, I think, is a source of happiness not only for the families but also for the entire country," Obama said.
Ling was later seen entering her mother's home in the Los Angeles suburb of Toluca Lake, while Lee was spotted going into her home in Los Angeles. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said Clinton will fill in Obama's national security team on what transpired during his trip as a private envoy to Pyongyang.
He reiterated that Clinton did not carry a message from Obama to Kim. "If there wasn't a message, there certainly couldn't have been an apology," Gibbs said. When asked whether the release of the journalists could lead to a breakthrough on other issues such as North Korea's nuclear program, Gibbs said that will depend on the actions of the communist regime. "The people that walked away from the obligations they agreed to were not anybody involved on our side," Gibbs said.
"It was the North Koreans." Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton hailed the journalists' release. "I spoke to my husband on the airplane and everything went well," she told reporters in Nairobi, Kenya. "They are extremely excited to be reunited soon when they touch down in California.
It was just a good day to be able to see this happen." Ling, a 32-year-old California native, is the younger sister of Lisa Ling, a correspondent for CNN as well as "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and "National Geographic Explorer."
Lee, 36, is a South Korean-born U.S. citizen. They were arrested near the North Korean-Chinese border in March while on a reporting trip for Current TV.
