The Takeaway speaks with the former U.S. Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, at the eighth annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative in New York City.
John spoke with former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright today in an interview that will air tomorrow on The Takeaway. John asked the former secretary if and how the United Nations ought to define the blasphemy.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright has spent her career working on complicated issues of history, ethnic identity, and governance, but she didn't realize the complexity of her own identity until the age of 59. In 1997, as the Clinton Administration vetted then-Ambassador Albright for the Secretary of State position, Albright discovered that most of her family was Jewish — and that many of her relatives perished in the Holocaust. That realization provided the impetus for her new book, "Prague Winter."
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright managed the United States' relationship with a rapidly-changing China at the turn of the millennium. As the United States and China continue to negotiate for the safety of dissident Chen Guangcheng, Secretary Albright discusses the United States' current relationship with China, and her new book, "Prague Winter: A Personal Story of Remembrance and War, 1937-1948."
