Video: Detained journalists

Editor's note: In early June Anderson spoke to the families of Laura Ling and Euna Lee, American journalists detained in North Korea. A couple of days later, Ling and Lee were sentenced to 12 years in prison on charges of entering North Korea illegally. Former President Bill Clinton is in North Korea to negotiate their release.

    Hopefully, politics will stay out of this and not become another way for the right to criticize this administration but five will get you ten they won't stay out of it.

    Bill Clinton is a very good choice for this assignment. I am sure that he has the perceptive ability and verbal talent to secure the release of these two people. He is demonstrated his persuasiveness in the past and I believe he find a way to break through the intransigence of the North Koreans to resolve this situation.

    I hope they get released. They deserve to come home and be with their families.
