Mr. Williams, Admiral McConnell, and Lt. Gen. Kelly briefed reporters on events in the Persian Gulf war. Lt. Gen. Kelly gave the regular summary of statistics in the Persian Gulf war, and Admiral McConnell explained evidence the U.S. and allied military has accumulated on damage being done to Iraqi civilian targets by the Iraqi forces themselves.
