One thing that is clear here is Bill Clinton would not have gone to North Korea unless he was certain that he would be coming back with the 2 journalists.
Former president Clinton arrived in North Korea early Tuesday in an unmarked aircraft met warmly by North Korean officials and a young girl bearing flowers. This trip has been in the works for weeks. ABC News was told the North Korea had 2 demands: an apology from the US and a high-profile emissary to come to North Korea. The apology came in my interview with Secretary of State Clinton just a few weeks ago.
The young women themselves have apparently admitted that they probably did trespass. So they’re deeply regretful. And we’re very sorry these happened.
And now with President Clinton’s presence in North Korea, the second demand has clearly be met. There could not be a more high-profile emissary. Former president, husband of the Secretary of State and his former vice president AG co-founded Current TV where the journalists work.
Of all the presidents that we have had, the North Koreans would be particulaly happy to see him arrive at this very sensitive mission.
LL and EL were charged with illegally entering North Korea and sentenced to 12 years in a labor camp. L’s sister Lisa spoke to DS about what worries her most.
Lisa, so what about L’s health? You’ve talked about the fact that she has an ulcer which can be very, very serious conditon. What is your concern about her?
That’s another thing, yeah. Well, she’s a recurring ulcer, and we know that she’s been allowed to receive some medication. But we know that her doctor is very concerned. He’s written a letter, appealing to the North Korean govenrnment to at least allow her to see her physician. And as we all know, ulcers are exaggerated by stress. And earlier this summer, Lisa L told ABC’s BW, she dreamed of the moment of her sister’s release.  
What do you think the moment’s gonna be like when they get out the North Korea?
You know, it’s a scene that kind of brain-played over and over my head I just hope to concede.
And official said that could be just a matter of days. The announce, by the way, of Bill Clinton’s arrival happened while his wife was on an airplane headed for Africa on the refueling stop, a senior US offical said she would have no comment until president Clinton’s mission was complete, Diane.
Yes, that’s a s/ moment for the Secretary of State and then his husband in North Korea. But a question to you: I noticed that at the airport, presiedent Clinton, former president Clinton who was greeted by / , head of nuclear negotiating team for North Korea, everyone has said these 2 issues are separate issues, but will there be discussions about other things?  
Well, I think it was quite stunning he was there, Diane. But it is unclear whether they’ll talk about any thing else. The State Department is saying this is a humanitarian mission that is the single purpose here. But this certaly opens dialogue.
