Madeleine Albright: "The World Is A Mess"

|

MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, FMR. SECRETARY OF STATE: Well there is two really different things going on. And I think partially, Bob, in the diplomatic world there is something going on all the time and it is the job of diplomats to manage it. But there have been really two huge game changers and one is Putin's behavior vis-a-vis first Crimea and now towards Ukraine and a completely new behavior by Russia. And the other is what is happening in the Middle East, alot due to the Arab awakening and also the artificiality of the borders that were established after World War I. So, these are huge game changers and we are -- a lot of Americans are trying to figure out where the countries are. Most Americans knew very little about Islam and certainly did not know the difference between Shia and Sunni. So, there are an awful lot of things that are going on that need understanding and explanation but to put it mildly, the world is a mess.
