Personal information
Early life
Albright was born on May 15, 1937 in the Smíchov district of Prague, the capital of Czechoslovakia. At the time of her birth, Czechoslovakia had been independent for less than 20 years, having gained independence from Austria after World War One. Her father, Josef Korbel, was a diplomat and supporter of the early Czech democrats, Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk and Edvard Beneš.[1] She was his first child with wife Anna (née Spieglová), who later also had another daughter Katherine (a schoolteacher) and son John (an economist). At the time of Albright’s birth, Korbel was serving as press-attaché at the Czech Embassy in Belgrade. However, the signing of the Munich Agreement in March 1938 and the disintegration of Czechoslovakia at the hands of Adolf Hitler forced the family into exile because of their links with Benes.[2] Albright spent the War years in England, while her father worked for Benes’ government in exile. They first lived on Kensington Park Road in Notting Hill, London, where they endured the worst of the Blitz, but later moved to Beaconsfield, then Waltonon-Thames, on the outer skirts of London.[3] While in England, a young Albright appeared as a refugee child in a film designed to promote sympathy for all War refugees in London.[4] After the defeat of the Nazis, Albright and family moved back to Prague, where they were given a luxurious apartment in the Hradcany district (which later caused controversy, as it had belonged to a German industrialist forced out by the Benes decrees-see "Controversies"). Korbel was named Czechoslovak Ambassador to Yugoslavia, and the family moved to Belgrade. Communists governed Yugoslavia, and Korbel was concerned his daughter would be indoctrinated with Marxist ideology in a Yugoslav school, so she was taught by a governess and later sent to the Prealpina Institut pour Jeunes Filles in Chexbres, on Lake Geneva in Switzerland.[5] Here, she learned French and

Madeleine Korbel Albright (born Marie Jana Korbelová on May 15, 1937) was the first woman to become United States Secretary of State. She was appointed by President Bill Clinton on December 5, 1996, and was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate 99-0. She was sworn in on January 23, 1997. She is currently a professor at Georgetown University.

went by Madeleine, the French version of Madlenka, her Czech nickname.[6] However, the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia took over the government in 1948, with support from the Soviet Union, and as an opponent of Communism, Korbel was forced to resign from his position.[7] He later obtained a position on a United Nations delegation to Kashmir, and sent his family to the USA, by way of London, to wait for him when he arrived to deliver his report to the UN Headquarters, then in Lake Success, New York.[7] The family arrived in New York in November 1948, and initially settled in Great Neck, on Long Island.[8] Korbel applied for political asylum, arguing that as an opponent of Communism he was now under threat in Prague.[9] With the help of Philip Mosely, a professor of Russian at Columbia University, Korbel obtained a position on the staff of the political science department at the University of Denver.[10] He became dean of the University’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, and later taught future US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.[1]

Madeleine Albright
New York City, and the couple moved to Garden City, Long Island.[18] That year, she gave birth to twin daughters Alice Patterson and Anne Korbel Albright. The twins were six weeks premature, and required a long hospital stay, so as a distraction, Albright began Russian classes at Hofstra University.[18] In 1962, the family moved to Georgetown in Washington, D.C., and Albright began studying international relations and Russian at Johns Hopkins University’s School of Advanced International Studies.[19] However, in 1963 Alicia Patterson died, and the family returned to Long Island with the notion of Joseph taking over the family business.[20] Albright gave birth to another daughter, Katherine Medill Albright, in 1967, and continued her studies at Columbia University.[21] She earned a certificate in Russian, an M.A. and Ph.D, writing her M.A. dissertation on the Soviet diplomatic corps, and her Ph.D thesis on the role of journalists in the Prague Spring of 1968.[22] She also took a graduate course given by Zbigniew Brzezinski, who would later be her boss at the National Security Council.[23] The family returned to Washington in 1968, and Albright commuted to Columbia for her PhD, which she received in 1975.[24] She began fund-raising for her daughter’s school, which led to several positions on education boards.[25] She was eventually invited to organize a fund-raising dinner for Senator Ed Muskie of Maine’s presidential campaign in 1972.[26] This association with Muskie led to a position as his chief legislative assistant in 1976.[27] However, after the election of Jimmy Carter in 1976, Albright’s former professor Zbigniew Brzezinski was named National Security Advisor, and recruited Albright from Muskie in 1978 to work in the West Wing as the National Security Council’s congressional liaison.[27] Following Carter’s loss in 1980 to Ronald Reagan, Albright moved on to the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars at the Smithsonian Institution, where she was given a grant for a research project.[28] She chose to write on the dissident journalists involved in Poland’s Solidarity movement, then in its infancy but gaining international attention[29]. She traveled to Poland for her research, interviewing dissidents in Gdansk, Warsaw and Krakow.[30] Upon her return to Washington, her husband announced his intention to divorce her for another woman.[31]

Education
Albright spent her teen years in Denver, and graduated from Kent School in 1955, where she founded the school’s international relations club and was its first president.[11] She attended Wellesley College on a full scholarship, majoring in political science and graduating in 1959.[12] Her senior thesis was written on Czech Communist Zdenek Fierlinger.[13] She became a US citizen in 1957, and joined the College Democrats.[14] While home in Denver from Wellesley, Albright worked as an intern for The Denver Post, where she met Joseph Medill Patterson Albright, the nephew of Alicia Patterson, owner of Newsday and wife of philanthropist Harry Frank Guggenheim.[15] The couple were married in 1959, shortly after her graduation, in Wellesley[12]. They lived first in Rolla, Missouri, while he served his military service at nearby Fort Leonard Wood.[16] During this time, she worked at the Rolla Daily News.[16] In January 1960 the couple moved to his hometown of Chicago, where he worked at the Chicago Sun-Times as a journalist, and Albright worked as a picture editor for Encyclopedia Brittanica.[17] The following year, Joseph Albright began work at Newsday in

In addition to her PhD, Albright was also awarded Honorary Doctors of Laws from the University of Washington in 2002, University of Winnipeg in 2005, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2007 and Knox College in 2008 [32] Today, Secretary Albright is once again a professor at Georgetown, and serves as a Director on the Board of the Council on Foreign Relations.[33] Albright is multilingual, being fluent in English, French, and Czech in addition to Russian, with good speaking and reading abilities in Polish and Serbo-Croatian.

Madeleine Albright
In 1994, in her role as the United States’ UN permanent representative she led efforts to deny declaring the massacres in Rwanda genocide.[40] The State Department instructed the White House press secretary to avoid using the words "genocide" and to substitute the terms "acts of genocide". She also led resistance to a new mandate to a new UN mission towards "ensuring" stability and security in the provinces of Rwanda.[41] She was also criticized for defending the UN sanctions against Iraq (under Saddam Hussein) in a 1996 interview with Lesley Stahl on a segment of CBS’s 60 Minutes[42] that, according to Albright, ignored Saddam’s culpability, his misuse of Iraqi resources, or the fact that we were not embargoing medicine or food. I was exasperated that our TV was showing what amounted to Iraqi propaganda.[43] When asked by Stahl, "We have heard that half a million children have died [as a result of sanctions]. I mean, that’s more children than died in Hiroshima. And, you know, is the price worth it?" Albright replied: "I think this is a very hard choice, but the price — we think the price is worth it."[43][44] She later expressed regret for this remark when she wrote in her 2003 autobiography, I must have been crazy; I should have answered the question by reframing it and pointing out the inherent flaws in the premise behind it. […] As soon as I had spoken, I wished for the power to freeze time and take back those words. My reply had been a terrible mistake, hasty, clumsy, and wrong. […] I had fallen into a trap and said something that I simply did not mean. That is no one’s fault but my own.[43] This "trap" has been identified as a loaded question.[45][46] Her failure to "refram[e the question] and point[] out [its] inherent flaws"[43] has been called "the non-denial heard ’round the world"[47] because "by not challenging the statistic, Albright inadvertently lent credence to it."[45] When asked about her response in 2005, Albright said "I never should have made it, it was stupid,"

Career
Madeleine Albright has served as a lecturer in political science and international relations at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. since 1982, specializing in Eastern European studies.[34] She has also directed the University’s program on women in global politics.[35] She has also served as a major Democratic Party foreign policy advisor, and briefed Vice-Presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro in 1984 and Presidential candidate Michael Dukakis in 1988 (both campaigns ended in defeat).[36] In 1992, Bill Clinton returned the White House to the Democrats, and Albright was employed to handle the transition to a new administration at the National Security Council.[37] In January 1993, Clinton nominated her to be United States Ambassador to the United Nations, her first diplomatic posting.[38]

United States Ambassador to the United Nations
Albright was appointed ambassador to the UN, her first diplomatic post, shortly after Clinton was inaugurated, presenting her credentials on February 9, 1993. During her tenure at the UN, she had a rocky relationship with the United Nations Secretary-General, Boutros Boutros-Ghali. She did not take action against the genocide in Rwanda. Albright later remarked in PBS documentary Ghosts of Rwanda that it was a very, very difficult time, and the situation was unclear. You know, in retrospect, it all looks very clear. But when you were [there] at the time, it was unclear about what was happening in Rwanda."[39]

and that she still supported the concept of tailored sanctions.[48] Both Bill Clinton and Madeleine Albright insisted that an attack on Hussein could only be stopped if Hussein reversed his decision to halt arms inspections. "Iraq has a simple choice. Reverse course or face the consequences," Albright said.[49] The lawyers of Mohamed Rashed Daoud Al-Owhali, convicted in the 1998 bombing of the US Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya, used Albright’s 60 Minutes comment in an attempt to save the terrorist from the death penalty.[50] Also in 1996, after Cuban military pilots shot down two small civilian aircraft flown by the Cuban-American exile group Brothers to the Rescue over international waters, she announced, "This is not cojones. This is cowardice." The line reportedly endeared her to President Clinton. Boutros Boutros-Ghali’s spokesperson Sylvana Foa said of Albright, "She’s no shrinking violet. She can be biting."

Madeleine Albright

With NATO officers during the NATO Ceremony of Accession of New Members in 1999 As Secretary of State she represented the United States at the Handover of Hong Kong on July 1, 1997. She boycotted the swearingin ceremony of the China-appointed Legislative Council, which replaced the elected one, along with the British contingents.[52] According to several accounts, the American ambassador to Kenya, Prudence Bushnell, repeatedly asked Washington for additional security at the embassy in Nairobi, including in an April 1998 letter directly to Albright. Bushnell was ignored.[53] In "Against All Enemies," Richard Clarke writes about an exchange with Albright several months after the US embassies in Kenya and Tanzania were bombed in August 1998. "What do you think will happen if you lose another embassy?" Clarke asked. "The Republicans in Congress will go after you." "First of all, I didn’t lose these two embassies," Albright shot back. "I inherited them in the shape they were." Albright was booed in 1998 when the brief war threat with Iraq revealed that citizens were opposed to such an invasion, although this is often overlooked. In 1998, at the NATO summit, Albright articulated what would become known as the "three Ds" of NATO, "which is no diminution of NATO, no discrimination and no duplication—because I think that we don’t need any of those three "Ds" to happen."[54] In 2000, Secretary Albright became one of the highest level Western diplomats ever to meet Kim Jong-il, the communist leader of North Korea, during an official state visit to that country.[55] In one of her last acts as Secretary of State, Albright on January 8, 2001, paid a farewell call on Kofi Annan and said that the United States would continue to press Iraq to

Secretary of State
When Madeleine Albright was confirmed as the 64th Secretary of State of the United States, she became the first female United States Secretary of State and the highestranking woman in the history of the United States government. Not being a natural born citizen of the United States, she was not eligible as Presidential Successor and was excluded from nuclear contingency plans. As Secretary, Dr. Albright reinforced America’s alliances, advocated democracy and human rights, and promoted American trade and business, labor and environmental standards abroad. During her tenure, Albright considerably influenced American policy in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Middle East. She incurred the wrath of a number of Serbs in the former Yugoslavia for her role in participating in the formulation of US policy during the Kosovo War and Bosnian war as well as the rest of the Balkans. But, together with President Bill Clinton, she remains a largely popular figure in the rest of the region, especially Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Croatia. According to Albright’s memoirs, she once argued with Colin Powell for the use of military force by asking, "What’s the point of you saving this superb military for, Colin, if we can’t use it?" [51]

destroy all its weapons of mass destruction as a condition of lifting economic sanctions, even after the end of the Clinton administration on January 20, 2001.[56]

In 2003, she accepted a position on the Board of Directors of the New York Stock Exchange. In 2005, Albright declined to run for re-election to the Board in the aftermath of the Grasso compensation scandal, in which the Chairman of the NYSE Board of Directors, Dick Grasso, had been granted $187.5-million dollars in compensation, with little governance by the board on which Albright sat. During the tenure of the interim chairman, John S. Reed, Albright served as chairwoman of the NYSE board’s nominating and governance committee. Shortly after the appointment of the NYSE board’s permanent chairman in 2005, Albright submitted her resignation.[62] On January 5, 2006, she participated in a meeting at the White House of former Secretaries of Defense and State to discuss United States foreign policy with George W. Bush administration officials. On May 5, 2006 she was again invited to the White House to meet with former Secretaries and Bush administration officials to discuss Iraq. Albright currently serves as chairperson of the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs and as president of the Truman Scholarship Foundation. She is also the cochair of the Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor and held the Chair of the Council of Women World Leaders Women’s Ministerial Initiative up until November 16, 2007, succeeded by Margot Wallström. In an interview given to Newsweek International published July 24, 2006, Albright gave her opinion on current United States foreign policy. Albright said: "I hope I’m wrong, but I’m afraid that Iraq is going to turn out to be the greatest disaster in American foreign policy—worse than Vietnam."[63] In September 2006, she received the MiE Award, with Václav Havel, for furthering the cause of international understanding. Albright has mentioned her physical fitness and exercise regimen in several interviews. She has said she is capable of leg pressing 400 pounds.[64][65] At the National Press Club in Washington on November 13, 2007, Albright declared that she with William Cohen would co-chair a new "Genocide Prevention Task Force"[66] created by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, the American Academy of Diplomacy, and the United States Institute for Peace. Her appointment was criticized by

Post-2001 career

Madeleine Albright at World Economic Forum Following Albright’s term as US Secretary of State, many speculated that she might pursue a career in Czech politics. Czech President Václav Havel talked openly about the possibility of Albright succeeding him after he retired in 2002. Albright was reportedly flattered by suggestions that she should run for office, but denied ever seriously considering it.[57] She was the 2nd recipient of the Hanno R. Ellenbogen Citizenship Award presented by the Prague Society for International Cooperation. In 2001, Albright founded the Albright Group, an international strategy consulting firm founded based in Washington, D.C.[58] It has Coca-Cola, Merck, Dubai Ports World, and Marsh & McLennan Companies among its clients, who benefit from the access that Albright has through her global contacts.[59][60] Affiliated with the firm is Albright Capital Management, which was founded in 2005 to engage in private fund management related to emerging markets.[60] Albright currently serves on the Council on Foreign Relations Board of directors and on the International Advisory Committee of the Brookings Doha Center.[61] She is also currently the Mortara Distinguished Professor of Diplomacy at the Georgetown University Walsh School of Foreign Service in Washington, DC. On October 25, 2005, Albright guest starred on the TV drama Gilmore Girls as herself.

the Armenian National Committee of America[67] and Harut Sassounian.[68] On May 13, 2007, two days before her 70th birthday, Albright received an honorary doctor of laws degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.[69]

relatives in Czechoslovakia were killed in the Holocaust, including three of her grandparents.[70] Albright was raised Catholic, although later in life, she joined the Episcopal Church of USA.

Stolen art
Madeleine Albright’s father, Josef Korbel, allegedly appropriated artwork which belonged to German industrialist Karl Nebrich, who owned a Prague apartment later given to Korbel after World War II. Like most other German-speakers living in Czechoslovakia, Nebrich and his family were expelled from the country under the postwar Beneš decrees. The claim is being pressed by Philipp Harmer, the great-grandson of Karl Nebrich.[71]

Albright speaks during the third night of the 2008 Democratic National Convention in Denver, Colorado. Albright endorsed and supported Hillary Clinton in her 2008 campaign for President of the United States. Albright has been a close friend of Secretary of State Clinton and serves as her top informal advisor on foreign policy matters. She is currently serving as a top advisor for United States President Barack Obama in a working group on national security. On December 1, 2008, Presidentelect Obama nominated then-Senator Clinton for Albright’s former post of Secretary of State. Albright currently lives on her farm near the small town of Hillsboro, in Loudoun County, Virginia.

Radovan Karadžić
During his first hearing in front of the ICTY, Radovan Karadžić stated that Madeleine Albright[72] along with Richard Holbrooke offered him a deal which would allow him not to get prosecuted for war crimes if he would disappear from public life and politics. According to Karadžić, Albright offered him to get out of the way and go to Russia, Greece, or Serbia and open a private clinic or to at least go to Bijeljina.[73] He also said that Holbrooke or Albright would like to see him disappear and expressed the fear for his life by saying "I do not know how long the arm of Mr Holbrooke or Mrs Albright is ... or whether that arm can reach me here."[74]
