Albright: Can't Keep Diplomats Behind Walls

Former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, former U.S. ambassador to Iraq and Afghanistan Ryan Crocker and French philosopher and author Bernard-Henri Levy honored Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed on Sept. 11 with three others, at Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s Hero Summit on Thursday. “He was the kind of person we need as diplomats,” Albright said. Crocker called Stevens “one of very finest officers,” and noted that Stevens was fluent in Arabic and wanted to “dramatically influence the future of Libya.”
