FROM:        Don Rumsfeld

 

Dear Mr. Friedlander,

 

Thank you so much for organizing the recent dinner which I was privileged to attend.

 

I certainly agree with you that Anwar Sadat would be a most appropriate recipient of the Congressional Gold Medal.  I looked over the list of people who have received the Medal in the past and I have no doubt but that they would strongly support adding Anwar Sadat to that list. I also am confident that the gentlemen in the delegation to Nasser’s funeral, when we first met the then-Acting President Anwar Sadat, Mr. John McCloy and Mr. Robert Murphy, would be equally enthusiastic about the Congressional Gold Medal being awarded to Anwar Sadat.

 

Thank you for including me.

 

Sincerely.
