Mike Wallace & Ayatollah Khomeini

In a memorable interview from 1979, Wallace got the stoic Ayatollah Khomeini to smile during the Iranian hostage crisis when he asked him what he thought about being called a “lunatic" by Egyptian President Anwar Sadat. The Ayatollah answered by correctly predicting that Sadat would be assassinated. (CREDIT: CBS)
