STAHL, Lesley. Lesley Stahl to Madeleine Albright: "Half a million [Iraqi] children have died ... is the price worth it?"

Lesley Stahl (born December 16, 1941) is a Jewish American television journalist. Since 1991, she has reported for CBS on 60 Minutes. A graduate of Wheaton College, her career received a boost from her coverage of the Watergate scandal. In October 2007, Nicolas Sarkozy, President of France, war criminal, war monger and pro-Zionist, stood up and walked away from an interview with Lesley Stahl, because she asked him about his relationship with his soon-to-be estranged spouse (see: ).

Lesley Stahl is famous for asking former Secretary of State (1997-2001) Madeleine Albright on “60 Minutes” in 1996 about the “half a million children” who had died under Sanctions on Iraq.

On May 12, 1996, Albright defended UN sanctions against Iraq on a “60 Minutes” segment in which Lesley Stahl asked her "We have heard that half a million children have died. I mean, that's more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" and Albright replied "we think the price is worth it." . [1].
