Should Carter Be Sent to Obama?

The Boston Herald reports that former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has convinced North Korea's Kim Jong Il to do what the current U.S. President Barack Obama has never done: grant a pardon!

Thirty-one year old English teacher Aijalon Gomes was arrested seven months for "trespassing" and committing a "hostile act."  He was then sentenced to eight years of hard labor and fined 70 million won (or, more than $600,000). It is reported that Gomes had attempted suicide out of despair. The government of North Korea deems the release of the "illegal entrant" as evidence of that Nation's "humanitarianism and peace-loving policy." See complete story here.
