From KCNA:

Bill Clinton Arrives Here
Pyongyang, August 4 (KCNA) — Bill Clinton, former president of the United States, and his party arrived here Tuesday by air.

They were greeted by Yang Hyong Sop, vice-president of the Presidium of the Supreme People’s Assembly, and Kim Kye Gwan, vice-minister of Foreign Affairs.

A little girl presented a bouquet to Bill Clinton.

What is it about North Korean leaders at death’s door and ex-Presidents?

    “…President and Mrs. Carter were sent as private citizens representing The Carter Center to meet with President Kim Il Sung in Pyongyang. A breakthrough was achieved, and North Korea agreed to freeze its nuclear program in exchange for a dialogue with the United States. The trip set a new stage for efforts to strengthen peace on the Korean Peninsula.”

    Another “breakthrough” is
    imminent 🙂

    You joke, but when was the last time you saw an official group photo featuring a Secret Service agent? He’s on the back, far left.

    I love them zany NORKs.
