Interrupt? Jan 21, 2011

Maybe the interpreter should have dared to interrupt the President/should have tried to get word to the President through sb else that he should make the required breaks to allow for consecutive interpreting? On the other hand, if the interpreter felt confident and did a good job delivering the entire response consecutively... then well done
