Bill Clinton's recent trip to North Korea to bring home imprisoned American journalists Euna Lee and Laura Ling was a welcome end to a frightening ordeal for these women and their families. All Americans can share in their well-publicized jubilation. Beyond this, however, there is little to celebrate. Denny Roy discusses the implications of Bill Clinton's visit to North Korea.
