Madeleine Albright


Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was on my KMOX show today to talk about her book, "Memo To The President Elect."

I asked her why she appeared behind Hillary Clinton after the Iowa caucuses, but was nowhere to be seen on the night of the New Hampshire primary, and had her explain her role in the Clinton candidacy.

We also discussed what the end game should be in Iraq, what she thinks the US can do about Iran, and how dangerous the situation in Pakistan is.

I also asked Albright why the US continues to suck up to the Saudis, just because of the black goo under their sand. The latest example was President Bush announcing today that he'll allow the sale of $20 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia -- with no strings attached regarding their continuing history of allowing Wahabbist madrassahs to preach hatred of the United States, or their terrible record on human rights regarding women.

Listen.
