Summary
This unprecedented historical retrospective provides an inside look at how the U.S. responded to the Gulf crisis, how America's leaders evaluated data and options, how decisions were made and policies implemented, and how the crisis was managed on a day-to-day basis-in short, the steps that led to war and thence to the cease-fire. The participants include James Baker, Dick Cheney, Colin Powell, and most of the other members of President Bush's "war cabinet" as well as the sub-cabinet officials who played central roles in the political, diplomatic, and military aspects of the war. We know of no comparable instance in which so many top-level officials have come together to discuss openly an event of such historic proportions. What this program presents is the firsthand recollections, very shortly after the events took place, of the decision-makers responsible for taking the U.S. into and out of war
