Final Briefings by White House Press Secretaries
February 14, 2011
On Friday, February 11, Robert Gibbs gave his final White House briefing as press secretary. We thought it would be interesting to look back at the final briefings of other White House press secretaries. You can find them all collected on a special page. Look back at Ari Fleischer, Tony Snow, Dana Perino, Jake Siewert, and Scott McClellan, Joe Lockhardt, and Dee Dee Myers as they gave their last briefings. It is all there is the C-SPAN Video Library.

El Baradei in Video Library
Mohamed El Baradei, a prominent leader in the Egyptian protests, has appeared many times in the C-SPAN Video Library. As director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, he has appeared at many United Nations meetings and forums on nuclear weapons. Last April, 2010, he gave a speech at Harvard where he answered a number of questions about Egypt. In an answer to a question he talks about being an agent for change and his chances of being president. In this second clip he talks about democratic change in Egypt and his interest in being president of Egypt. The C-SPAN Video Library can be used to follow emerging leaders in many countries.
