Interpreting Conflict

Gamal Helal is the top Arabic interpreter at the State Department. He has served three presidents, numerous defense secretaries and secretaries of state in their diplomatic efforts in the Middle East. He’s got a handful of new bosses, from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to a special Middle East Envoy. Tensions in the region are high, and expectations may now be higher.

Gamal talks with Dick Gordon about the role he's played in intense Middle East negotiations in the past, and what he hopes for the future.
