Secretary Madeleine Albright: On the U.S. Responsibility to Protect

Former U.S. Secretary of State thinks the U.S. has a responsibility to protect other countries facing crisis. She was here last month as part of a panel on preventing genocide, Responsibility to Protect..., which 92Y presented along with the U.S. Holocaust Museum.

On the U.S. responsibility to protect, Albright was unwavering:

"If we know everything that's going on, and we detest it, why don't we do something about it?"
