Mr. Williams, Lt. Gen. Kelly and Admiral Herrington spoke to reporters in the Pentagon on events in the Persian Gulf war. Lt. Gen. Kelly said the U.S. and allied forces were not going to change their strategy in bombing Iraqi military and strategic targets despite the deaths of hundred of Iraqi civilians in a bombing incident on February 13. Iraq claims the civilians had been in an air raid bunker, while U.S. officials maintain the bunker had actually been a military command and control center and therefore a legitimate military target. He said the U.S. military would “redouble their efforts” to make sure civilian casualties are held to a minimum. close
