Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
I don’t recall why I did research on Madeleine Albright, oh wait…
Now I remember.
The Hillary Clinton Benghazi scandal. “What does it matter,” when US Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed by Benghazi protesters, and Hillary Clinton blamed it on a random Youtube video. It was also reported that a squad of marines in Italy could have rescued Chris Stevens in time; but Hillary ordered them to stand down?
Anyways, Madeleine Albright had her own “What does it matter” moment in 1998, when she served as the 64th US Secretary of State. Albright ignored a plea for additional security by US Ambassador Prudence Bushnell. 4 months later, the Kenyan and Tanzanian embassies were leveled by terrorists. Albright’s response was “First of all, I didn’t lose these two embassies, I inherited them in the shape they were.” Cognitive dissonance or incompetence? We will never get a confession.
Albright is also known for a certain “Genocide Prevention Task Force” which she co-chaired with a William Cohen. But on the back of this she fails to mention that she’s an Armenian genocide denier. Sounds like Erdogan!
When we take a look at Albright’s sidekick William Cohen, he turns out to be more like Adolf Hitler or Joseph Goebbels, rather than a Boy Wonder.
Cohen was part of the leadership that managed the bombings of Yugoslavia in 1999.
…which resulted in the massacre of 489 to 528 civilians. The bombing operation also went against the UN Security Council, the thing that was set up to prevent exactly these types of things. I would call that breaking international law.
But of course, no story is complete if the main character doesn’t deny any and all wrongdoing. Albright claims to not have known about her family’s deceitful past until lawsuits were brought upon her. She claimed she didn’t know of her Jewish background when charges of theft were brought upon her. Her family’s connections with the Czech foreign ministry during World War 2 also appeared to be a blurry timeline during which her father pried the literal “nails” made of silver off “the walls.”
There’s more to Madeline Albright that I’m not going to write about, but you can check that out for yourself if you’d like. Who knows, you might even find it entertaining.
Writing is all about finding the courage to write. And courage is all about realizing that some things are more important than fear.
