Muhammad Ali and a Forgotten Role

This is a somewhat forgotten story about 'The Champ.'  In 1990, Muhammad Ali traveled to Iraq to press a plea for peace and negotiate with Saddam Hussein for the release of U. S. citizens taken hostage after Iraq's invasion of Kuwait.  Herein, find the video story.  It is compelling.

Ali is a major cultural, sports, political figure of our time. He was certainly a hero of mine.  He has been a philanthropist, a social activist,  maverick, a rebel, a character of our time......indeed "The Greatest."
