When U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright was interviewed in May 1996 on CBS 60 Minutes news program, reporter Leslie Stahl spoke this comment and question: "We have heard that a half million children have died [as a result of sanctions against Iraq]. I mean, that is more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" To which Albright replied: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price, we think the price is worth it." — anonymous
