Are Laura Ling And Euna Lee Spies?
Euna Lee and Laura Ling were documenting human rights abuses of North Korean women along the China-North Korea border when they were arrested on March 17. The women were working for California-based media company Current TV when they were taken into custody by North Korean officials. They have been convicted of an unnamed “grave crime” in the Central Court in Pyongyang, according to Amnesty International.
The White House released a statement on Monday about the verdict, saying that President Obama is “deeply concerned” about the sentence and the White House is working to help secure their release.
Ling and Lee were initially accused of “hostile activities” and illegally entering the country, according to another press freedom organization working for the women’s release, Reporters Without Borders (RSF).
It wouldn't be the first time a country - especially the Great Satan of America - used spies under the cover of being a "journalist."
What better cover for a spy than to claim to be a journalist? It wouldn't be the first time that Ling lied about her profession. According to a story in The Mercury News, Ling infiltrated [North Korea] by posing as a "doctor's assistant" working for a Nepalese medical team.
Some on The Left blame the W. Bush Administration for North Korea's actions, but it was a strong Bush Administration that forced North Korea to "blink": WSJ:
North Korea has now achieved one of its most-prized objectives: removal from the U.S. list of state sponsors of terrorism. In exchange, the U.S. has received "promises" on verification that are vague and amount to an agreement to negotiate the critical points later.
North Korea is the world's most accomplished serial violator of international agreements, beginning with the Korean War Armistice Agreement it signed in 1953 and including every other significant subsequent DPRK commitment.
So it was probably a shock to Kimmy when W. Bush took a hard stance against North Korea. The Free Ride Kimmy had during the Clinton Admin was gone.
The imprisonment of Ling and Lee is simply the reaction of a non-superpower nation retaliating against an Imperialistic America; an Imperialistic America run by Barack Hussein Obama, Junior. Oh, Obama can be fierce and admonishing when it comes to disciplining Israel, but when it comes to taking a tough stand against countries that sponsor, harbor and promote terrorism, well - these countries know Obama will tuck his tail between his legs and run away, the scared pacifistic little appeaser that he is.
Kimmy will use Ling and Lee as bargaining chips for something or other, somewhere down the road. And Obama will cave like the vagina that he is.
The NY Daily News reports on the conditions Ling and Lee will endure:
Hell on Earth is a North Korean "political offense village," where two U.S. journalists may wind up after being slapped Monday with 12 years' hard labor.
The inhuman prison camps where Current TV journalists Laura Ling, whose sister is ex-"The View" star Lisa Ling, and Euna Lee may be sent are harvesters of horror in the black heart of the totalitarian regime's countryside, North Korean experts say.
"They are a nasty part of a nasty country," said GlobalSecurity.org intelligence analyst John Pike. "They're not as bad as Hitler's concentration camps or Stalin's gulags, but they're a close third."
T. Kumar, an Amnesty International expert on North Korea's abysmal human rights record, called the forced labor camps "extremely gruesome."
"There are no rest days. It's a backbreaking environment - with torture," he said. "They just beat the hell out of these people."
Really now, how bad can this North Korean labor camp be as far as torture when waterboarding isn't even mentioned as part of the experience? According to The Left, nothing is a more heinous form of torture than waterboarding.
It's okay for Conservatives, Independents and Libertarians to now Blame America because the Liberals are in charge. Behaving like this is no different than how The Left behaved during the W. Bush Admin. Non-Pbama Cultists can now Blame America and its Prednint with impunity. Try it, you'll like it!
Let Ling and Lee (sounds like a team of pandas, doesn't it?) rot in the forced labor camp. How do we know this isn't, at the very least, a publicity stunt? I mean, come on...it occurred on Obama's Watch. Everything is subject to suspicion.
America is at fault here. We (non-Pbama Cultists) can and will Blame America. It is American Imperialism under Obama that provoked North Korea. Who can blame Kimmy? He's just another incidental individual in Obama's Grand Plan of his New World Order.
Where did that come from? My bad making fun of Ling and Lee. Oh wait, that's just what The Left would be doing if it had been two FOX reporters. OK, My not so bad.
There've been plenty of hoaxes in the past from those who claimed to be journalists. I'm not buying this story yet.
And yep, Barry will let them hang over there until Kimmy pulls Barry's strings like the weakling that he is.
