#2 "Roxana Saberi, an Iranian-apologist American journalist who spent four months in an Iranian prison before being freed May 11 to shop her book on a suspended sentence for spying, urged the women to 'remain strong'."

I second 'keep em'.

#4 Shoulda wasted their life looking for their imaginary BushHitlerMonkey gulags. Now they're going to experience the real thing under a real dictatorship. Literally, red on red on this one.

#5 I can imagine a little of what they might be wishing for: The presumption of innocence until proven guilty. A fair trial, with access to attorneys of their choice and the right to study what is claimed as evidence against them. More contact with their families, whom they probably worry are worrying about themselves!"

That's one of most idotic things I've ever heard.

Otherwise, I wouldn't be too hard on them. They were investigating one of the nastier aspects of the Nork regime. Something liberals normally close their mind to, ie how nasty and evil these regimes are, as they (liberals) wallow in their fatuous moral equivalence.

#6 Yes, Phil_B, but they were investigating from the Chinese side of the border. Reports at the time said North Korean soldiers came across the border to kidnap them... just as they did the various Japanese -- mostly young women -- that the North Koreans decided they wanted. I don't blame Ms. Ling and Ms. Lee for what happened, I just pray they will survive, and with their honour and sanity intact.
