He was truly a legendary newsman. RIP Mike Wallace.
R.I.P. Mike Wallace a journalist true to his craft.
A journalist respected by colleagues and peers, who lived a life of accomplishment and loved his work. My condolences to his family on their loss. He will be missed by so many. R.I.P.
My favorite quote from when he interviewed Ayatollah Khomeini in the aftermath of the 1979 Iranian Revolution:
"Imam, President Sadat of Egypt says what you are doing is, quote, 'a disgrace to Islam.' And he calls you, imam, forgive me, his words, not mine, 'a lunatic.'"
The question was so direct that the translator was at first reluctant to give Khomeini the translation. For those who are wondering, Khomeini subsequently called for the overthrow/assassination of Sadat, which is what ended up happening.

A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.
Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.
All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
The journalists of today could certainly learn something from him...RIP Mike
One of the last of a dying breed. RIP, Mike.
