Bill Clinton Meets Kim Jong Il in North Korea

Hosted by

The White House says Bill Clinton's visit to North Korea is "solely private," and that any official comment might "jeopardize" his mission. He's there to secure the release of two American journalists recently sentenced to 12 years at hard labor. Shortly after Clinton's arrival today, pictures of the former president with North Korea's leader Kim Jong Il were circulated around the world. Selig Harrison, veteran of many visits to North Korea, is Director of the Asia Program at the Center for International Policy in Washington.
