|Citizen Stan profiles the amazing life of Stanley Sheinbaum, a citizen activist who has negotiated with Prime Ministers, Presidents and Kings, and found himself in league with gang leaders, peaceniks and Palestinians. Growing up in the rag trade and Vaudeville of New York City, Stanley Sheinbaum served during WWII making silk maps for combat aviators. Using his GI bill to graduate from Stanford, Sheinbaum was hired in the 1950s to co-direct a CIA-funded project at Michigan State University. The MSU project wrote the constitution for South Vietnam, and helped to set up its police force. Over a decade later, Sheinbaum evolved into a vocal critic of the Vietnam War, organizing campus teach-ins, and landing on Nixon's Enemies List. Daniel Ellsberg used Sheinbaum as his defense strategist during the Pentagon Papers trial. Around that same time, Sheinbaum took great personal risk to travel to Athens, and save his friend, Andreas Papandreou, from being killed by the Greek junta. Papandreou later became Prime Minister of Greece for a number of terms. Sheinbaum used this connection to further the back channel diplomacy he became known for. In a bold move, Sheinbaum found a way to open a dialogue with Yasser Arafat, and persuaded Arafat to formally denounce terrorism and recognize Israel. At the request of President Clinton, Sheinbaum traveled to Damascus to set up a summit with Syria s President Assad. Well-connected to Hollywood, Sheinbaum became a crucial fundraiser for political candidates and causes, including the ACLU. During the Los Angeles riots in 1992, as President of the Police Review Commission, Sheinbaum sparred with Police Chief Daryl Gates, ultimately forcing him to resign. A man you ought to know about, Sheinbaum s life story holds lessons for all who seek peace and understanding among the world s citizens.|
