As an addendum to the last post, here is a recent 60 Minutes story on Qatar: http://www.cbsnews.com/video/watch/?id=7395216n
Even more than a decade ago, the leaders of Qatar recognized the coming of democracy and the power of the media. Camelman always recalls the quote of Qatar’s foreign minister at the time: “Democracy started. Either the leaders like it or they don’t like it. Either you open the door or they break the door. It’s a matter of time, in my opinion.” A transcript of that 60 Minutes episode can be found here.
