Madeleine Albright says 500,000 dead Iraqi Children was "worth it".....wins Presidential Medal of Freedom from Obama

As the anniversary of probably one of the most infamous responses in broadcasting history approaches, the woman who uttered it is shortly to be awarded “the highest honour” that America bestows upon civilians — the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Madeleine Albright, Iraq’s Grim Reaper, of course, confirmed on Sixty Minutes (May 12, 1996) that the deaths of half a million children as a result of the absolute, all-embracing deprivations of the UN embargo were: “A hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it.”

One cynical blogger, was so incensed that the header read: “Genocidal war criminal wins Presidential Medal whilst invoking Holocaust memories.”

  • She'll die a morally torn apart, dementia ridden hag, pissing herself in an old folks home and wondering what it was all for.

  • I'm curious to what was said during the full interview. However, I don't agree with that particular part of her response. As a parent myself, and even before I became one, there is no 'worth it' when it comes to dead children, regardless of what country they are from.

      It is not worth it, but doing nothing would have been even worse on the long run. With Saddam in power Kurds in particular would have been realy badly off. Shias would have been also on Saddam's shit list as soon as sanctions are lifted. And any other dissident would be taught to think right way (if they survive).

      Now at least there is a chance of things getting better.

      She’s a Jew, and according to them, they are the “chosen ones” so can murder cattle goyim (that’s you and me) with impunity, and dare you disagree, you will be labelled by them as “a Nazi, tinfoil hat wearing, anti-Semite, conspiracy nut job freak domestic terrorist” who should be locked up for ever and ever with no trial or legal rights.

  • Jews like Madeleine Albright see non-Jews as expendable, like cattle, as their Talmud and religious leaders tell us. Only existing to be exploited:

    http://www.jpost.com/JewishWorld/JewishNews/Article.aspx?id=191782

    500,000 little kids murdered by starvation, malnutrition, lack of medicines etc., and all before 11 September 2001. That’s 9/11 multiplied over 166 times and on children. When we people get it about the Jews? They killed 65 million Russians under their communist ideology. They see More..

  • ARGH!!!, u guys are not understanding the video!!!
    The interviewer is asking whether or not the UN sanctions and embargo were worth it since it let 500K children die, via starvations/health supplies (non-war conditions). Madeleine Albright is Pro-Peace, b/c she prefers the use of diplomatic tools instead of War. The alternative : direct military intervention, also costs lives. Bush is prowar, obama is propeace, therefore obama gives medal to Madeleine, make sense? It is debatable whether absolu More..

    • @ZuraX the truth is everyone is tired of america, who cares about 9/11, just like japan, your textbooks dont talk about 1934 and the crap they pulled on the oil starvation and other pedaling, even bin ladin had interview with abc years before, saying america wont be attacked if they stay out of places.

      oh and fyi, THAT WAS AFGANISTAIN BIN LADINW AS FROM, NOT IRAQ!

      stupid people turn on news and believe whatever america tells them to
