October 1981
National Review;10/30/1981, Vol. 33 Issue 21, p1249
The article discusses the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat in October 1981. After the issuance of the Camp David agreements, Libyan dictator Muammar el-Qaddafi placed a price on the Sadat's head. Immediately, the U.S. government spent millions to protect Sadat's life. Sadat made an effort to change the world, and partly succeeded. He pushed Egypt toward the West. However, Sadat may have trusted the U.S. too much. Qaddafi threatened to assassinate the new Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak if he continues the foreign policies of Sadat.
