Obama talks to Clinton about NKorean mission

August 18, 2009 7:51:12 AM PDT
President Barack Obama plans to spend an hour with former President Bill Clinton in a debriefing session about Clinton's mission to North Korea that won the freedom of two imprisoned American journalists. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs says the session will be the second conversation between the two men, although Tuesday's meeting in the West Wing situation room will be the first in-person and in-depth debriefing. Clinton won the release of the journalists, women working for former Vice President Al Gore's Current-TV, on Aug. 4. The former president also met and had dinner with North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Il.

U.S. officials are eager to learn about Kim's health. He is believed to have had a stroke and is suffering from chronic health problems.
