Both the interviewer and Mike Totten seem to be intelligent people. And Mike Totten knows his stuff. I read his book and was impressed with it.

So I was a little shocked around 22 or 23 minutes into the segment when they said they thought Nasser had died sometime in the 1950s. I'm guessing that I didn't hear that right.

I hope I didn't hear that right, because it would be shocking to think that, Totten, at least, wouldn't be so ignorant! Nasser died in 1970 (at the age of 52). He was the one ruling Egypt during the war in 1967. He presided over the conference in Khartoum in 1967, with the famous "three no's" (no peace, no recognition, no negotiations). And Sadat followed Nasser into office.

How could Totten, at least, have made a mistake like that?!

Unless I did hear the tape wrong.
