Mike Wallace

Mike sent me this (I cite with his permission):  "As I have-mentioned to you, in the early seventies I was employed in the PLO's New York office as an English-language news analyst and public speaker. I recall that whenever there was some important news in the Middle East that affected the Palestinians, Mike Wallace would call the office looking for comments or information from the director, Saadat Hasan. Saadat also called Wallace when he wanted to get something out to the media, since Wallace was one of the very few mainstream journalists who had any interest in the Palestinian side of an issue."
