Puzzling Remark Made by Tom Brokaw About PLANNED 1st Gulf War!Submitted by ecorob on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 23:25
Tom Brokaw was sharing his disgust of what the White House Corresponent's Dinner (WHCD) has become when he made a very interesting remark. See the video at 6:45. Keep in mind that the WHCD is held, traditionally, on the last Saturday in April.
He is speaking about an off-the-cuff conversation he was having with James Baker who, at the time, was the US Secretary of State. Brokaw says he told Baker that he (Brokaw) was planning a vacation for late August of that year, 1990, when Baker replied, "I think you'll be changing those plans".
Considering the fact that the US invaded Iraq, presumably, based on Iraq's invasion of Kuwait (August 1990), how would James Baker know this 3 month's ahead?
Worth knowing? Coincidence? Just thought I'd sahare.
