<strong>Jimmy Carter in Egypt - Cairo seemed happy.</strong>


News for March 10, 1979. Jimmy Carter was giving the Middle East Peace Process some face time by visiting Egypt and heading over to Israel, meeting with both Anwar Sadat in Cairo and Menachem Begin in Tel-Aviv. Meanwhile, tensions were continuing between China and Vietnam with reports of Chinese troops digging in on the Vietnam border. Fighting was continuing in Uganda. Corsica was dealing with terrorist strikes at banks overnight with a string of bombings ratcheting up the nerve-factor. And to top it all off, Progressive Magazine created an uproar when plans were disclosed to publish an article "How To Build An H-bomb".

The collective breath of the earth got a bit shorter that particular day.

And so it went, as broadcast on The CBS World News Roundup, March 10, 1979.
