Admiral McConnell, Lt. Gen. Kelly and Mr. Williams briefed reporters in the Pentagon on events in the Persian Gulf war. Lt. Gen. Kelly recited the current statistics involving personnel and equipment in the Middle East. Lt. Gen. Kelly discussed the effects of “fuel-air mixture” weapons, and the logistics of a possible Iraqi withdrawal from Kuwait. Admiral McConnell said the lack of return fire during a specific border skirmish by the Iraqis did not indicate a possible withdrawal, but rather the Iraqis probably did not want to give away their position in the field. close
