Gulf War team reunites for 20th anniversary
We're in College Station, Texas tonight, where I just finished an extraordinary discussion with the original planners of Gulf War 1, which the Pentagon preferred to call "Desert Storm." Around a wooden table here at the Bush Presidential Library were:
President George Herbert Walker Bush
Vice President Dan Quayle
Vice President Dick Cheney
Secretary of State James Baker
Secretary of State Colin Powell
General Brent Scowcroft
General Walter Boomer
We covered it all—the first Gulf War, the Second Gulf War, the Presidency and history. We'll excerpt it during our remote broadcast from here tonight, and we'll tell folks where they can find the entire conversation.
We'll also cover the latest news—including the updated condition of Congresswoman Giffords.
We hope you can join us from Texas tonight.
