Former U.S. President Bill Clinton is on a visit "as a private citizen" to North Korea. Yonhap News (South Korea) has this report as of now, and can be generally followed in English at this web site.
Oddly, sources like NPR (American) have this as, to paraphrase, 'Al Gore asked to go, before, but the State Department wouldn't sign off on it'.
Hm. At least this gets eyes-on Kim Jong-Il. Maybe some value to that. Maybe, maybe *maybe* this is the showpiece kowtow required to get Laura Ling and Euna Lee out of there.
