Freed journalists home

Moving statement...a must see. A resolution that, to venture an overstatement, bodes well for the world. How reassuring to see careful and skilled diplomacy from U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton play out as it has here. Taking a hard line on the nuclear issue yet obtaining this release under an amnesty play and opening up the possibility of some kind of engagement with this rogue regime for the future.
"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.
Kind of inspiring for certain other nations who are maddeningly and inexplicably moving backwards.
