SEOUL, South Korea North Korea wants the U.S. to show remorse for the actions of two American journalists convicted of illegally entering the country, and it might free the women if Washington does so, a scholar who visited Pyongyang said Saturday.
The comments by North Korean officials to University of Georgia political scientist Han S. Park came as analysts say the isolated communist regime intends to use the detention of Laura Ling and Euna Lee as bargaining chips in its ongoing standoff with Washington over the country's nuclear and missile threats.
The journalists were detained in March near the North Korean border with China and sentenced last month to 12 years of hard labor for entering the country illegally and for "hostile acts." The two who work for former U.S. Vice President Al Gore's California-based Current TV media group were in the area to interview North Korean refugees.
Park said Saturday that North Korean officials told him during his recent five-day visit that the U.S. should offer "a remorseful acknowledgment" over the journalists' reporting, which they believe constituted "hostile acts" against their country because it would have cast the North in a negative light.

Obama apologises for everything we do, so he will humiliate us once again.
Hey you N. Korean pukes......Kiss My A$$
I got your remorse, right here!
So what calibre do they want the apology in?
This is too funny. Even Dear Leader understands the Wimp in Chief.
Need more popcorn.
Bingo .... suddenly Obama has a priority higher than claiming the economy is getting better....
...or building cars Americans won't buy, or tying the hands of investors and banks, or letting Iran build a bomb, or making sure Honduras stays on the road to a dictatorship, or leaving Israel weakened.....but I digress.
Okay. We’re sorry you arrest journalists. Even if they do work for Al Gore.
>Dear Mentally Ill Leader Lowlife!<
Who are you referring to — Kim or the occupant of the WH?
Dear North Koreans,
Consider this old American proverb -
“you can wish in one hand and SH@T in the other and see which one fills up faster”
Remorse this, Kim Il puke.
I would like to make a modest proposal to the Kim-bots of the “Peoples Republic of Korea”. We will trade their boss and a really funny Senator for the release of these KIDNAPPED US Journalists. That is a two-for-two trade up for you! We will even let you take your choice of which one you want to use as a nose-cone for your next ‘oh-so-impressive’ BM launch towards the sunrise in the east. How about it? Offer subject to change without notice. @nd prize is a sunrise in your face!
potus is busy preparing Air Force One right now. He will write his obligatory anti-american speech on the flight. He will be bowing to the ill one while delivering said speech.
Words can not explain my ANGER.
Sure I’m sure we’ve got a couple of 500lb bombs laying around I’d gladly label “Remorse”......LOL
And we have just the man for the job!/sarc
LING AND LEE PARDONED!!! BREAKING NOW!!!
Shep just called Kim Jong Il “dear leader” !!!
