Bill Clinton on Laura Ling and Euna Lee’s Homecoming

Former President Bill Clinton is speaking out about successfully negotiating the release of U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who returned to America yesterday after being imprisoned in North Korea for nearly five months.

"It's an important and interesting story, but my job was to do one thing, which I was profoundly honored to do as an American and a father -- I wanted those young women to be able to come home," Clinton said at a press conference on Thursday.

"And I wanted [the U.S. and North Korea] to have the ability to decide where to go from here. But anything I say beyond that could inadvertently affect the decisions and moves either here or in North Korea, or the attitudes of our allies, and I have no business doing that. I’m not a policy maker anymore," he added.
