Yesterday’s CBS current affairs program Face the Nation saw Bob Schieffer come face to face with the dynamic former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright. And she dropped the following bomb: “To put it mildly: the world is a mess.”
Albright, 77, was the first woman to become the United States Secretary of State. She held the position under the Clinton Administration, beginning in 1997. Talking about the current conflicts between Israel and Palestine and Russian and Ukraine, Albright said the following:
“There have been two huge game changers… One is Putin’s behavior vis-à-vis first Crimea and now toward Ukraine…and the other is what is happening in the Middle East, a lot of it due to the Arab awakening and the artificiality of the borders established after World War I… So there are an awful lot of things going on that need understanding and explaining. But to put it mildly, the world is a mess.”
