Former President Jimmy Carter reflected on the 35th anniversary of the Camp David Accords and the 1978 behind-the-scenes negotiations with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin. President Carter recalled the Central Intelligence Agency’s (CIA) pivotal role in negotiating an agreement between the two leaders. He also spoke about how a CIA character analysis of both leaders informed his own strategy during their meetings, and explained how a simple gesture between two fathers got the derailed talks back on track. 

The Camp David Accords led to the White House signing of two documents designed to promote Arab-Israeli peace. This half hour address was part of a symposium on the role of intelligence in the Middle East peace efforts, and took place at the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library in Atlanta. close
