Triumphant Return ... to Burbank

8/5/2009 11:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After nearly 5 months in North Korean captivity, journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee finally returned to Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California.

North Korean Journalists Triumphant Return

The photo on the right was taken moments after Laura was reunited with her sister, former "View" host Lisa Ling. The women hadn't seen their families since March.

The two women flew in on a private jet, reportedly owned by movie producer Steve Bing, who happens to be a close personal friend of Bill Clinton -- the man who talked 5'3" Kim Jong-il into releasing Laura and Euna.

59. Welcome Home Laura and Euna! God Bless You and God Bless Your Families!

P.S. You are far stronger than any of the nay-sayers on this site. They would probably be a bunch of cry-babies if locked up for but one day in North Korea.

Why don't these people go back to their own country instead of coming here. Damn immigrants...I'm tired of paying for your sorry Ass!! I'm sure their milking off of American taxpayers just like all the rest of the illegals...and now we have to pay to get them out of trouble..they should have stayed in N. Korea.

Glad they are safe, just don't understand why someone that chose to go to that part of the world had to be rescued. Time to rescue Bowe, the soldier AlQuida is holding and showing the video tape of. Can Bill please get him back?

I am glad that these two women are free and back home. But I am wondering why Obama couldn't do something to help them and why Bill Clinton was sent to do the job? The fact that Clinton was able to have them released makes Obama look like cr@p.
