President Bush announced the nomination of Representative Madigan for the position of Secretary of Agriculture to reporters in the White House. He also responded to questions from reporters on the Persian Gulf. President Bush, responding to a question on the huge and growing oil slick in the Persian Gulf being fed from pipes from Kuwaiti oil storage tanks and refineries, restated the position of the U.S. that Saddam Hussein is simply “outraging the world.” The U.S. will take steps to attempt to contain and clean up the gigantic slick. President Bush would not make a statement on the post-war status of Iraq and Kuwait, preferring only to reaffirm the objectives of the mission: to get Iraqi troops out of Kuwait. President Bush said the U.S. was having problems with the Soviet Union over the Baltic states, but the two countries also have common ground. He looked forward to the upcoming summit between U.S. Secretary of State Baker and Soviet Foreign Minister Bessmertnykh to clarify positions on various issues. close
