After speaking with President Clinton, North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il pardoned Laura Ling and Euna Lee. The women were reunited with their loved ones after five months in captivity. "The only person that could come to our rescue was President Clinton," Laura says. "We are so, so appreciative that he was willing to do so."

Lisa says she even teased the president for looking so serious once her sister was home safe. "I said, 'Nice face when you arrived in North Korea.' Because usually he's jovial and happy-go-lucky," she says. "He said, 'I had to practice that.' He didn't want the world to see that he was there for fun in any way."
