Bonus Feature: Confluence of Events:
“Confluence of Events” is an hour-long, organic one-on-one conversation with one of the “unsung heroes” of the historic Camp David Peace Accords — Leon Charney. In this exclusive special report, Charney reveals for the first time the consequential role he played as a backdoor channel and trusted adviser to President Jimmy Carter throughout the Middle East peace process.
“A well-reported history of the Camp David talks, the events that led to them, and the difficult negotiations that followed to forge the peace treaty that was signed the next spring. Reminds us what it takes to resolve the seemingly unresolvable… Leon Charney practically jump-started the final round of talks.” — NEW YORK TIMES
