(College Station: Brian Williams) The gathering in College Station, Texas of former President George Bush and his advisors 20 years after the Gulf war noted. [BUSH – states oil was not the whole message: it was a moral question; comments on Iraq's former President Saddam Hussein; explains the decision to end the war; talks about how feelings changed during his son’s administration.] [ADVISOR – says we were doing the right thing.] [Then-Secretary of Defense Dick CHENEY – talks about whether Gulf war 1 led to Gulf war 2; comments on the view that Gulf 2 was an elective war and the relationship among the men at the table.] [Then-Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman Colin POWELL – notes 9/11 changed the calculus used to measure Saddam Hussein; comments on becoming an occupation force.] NOTE: Local school closings on screen.
Williams, Brian
