Bill & Norko

Gosh I hate conspiracy theories, so I hesitate to bring this up. But does anyone besides Mr. W. & me find the Clintonian rescue a bit odd?

  • The journalists worked for Al Gore.
  • In July they told their families they thought they'd be freed if Bill Clinton would come to rescue them.
  • "Success," coupled with the marked public reconciliation of Clinton & Gore.
I'm glad the gals are home, but at best this strikes me as Obama dancing to Norko's tune, sending them the guy they demanded to see for unspecified, but certainly nefarious, purposes. I don't mind so much that Clinton went, but the instant he landed he should have denounced the Norkos as barbarians and shown their sorry publicity stunt for what it was.

Update: Hitch notices other oddities.
