Description : Abstract
David Boeri reports that Jesse Jackson (African American political leader) will travel to Iraq to interview Saddam Hussein (Iraqi leader) for the Jesse Jackson Show. Boeri notes that Jackson has met with both the Iraqi ambassador and Prince Turki bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia (brother of King Faad). He adds that Prince Aziz considers Jackson's trip to be a diplomatic mission to cool hostilities between Iraq and the United States. Boeri's report includes footage of Prince Aziz and his entourage. Boeri interviews Mustafa Aziz (advisor to Prince Aziz). Mustafa Aziz says that Jackson is well regarded in the Middle East. Boeri notes that George Bush (US President) does not support Jackson's trip. Boeri notes that Jackson traveled to Syria in 1984 to secure the release of Robert Goodman, Jr. (US Navy Pilot). Boeri's report includes footage of a press conference with Goodman and Jackson and footage of Ronald Reagan (former US President). Boeri reports that many suspect Jackson of taking cover as a journalist while on a diplomatic mission to Iraq. Boeri's report features footage from the Jesse Jackson Show.
