Secretary Aspin and General Powell spoke in a news briefing in the Pentagon on the U.S. military air strike against targets in Iraq earlier in the day. The two men spoke shortly after the president addressed the nation in a televised speech on the same subject. Secretary Aspin said the U.S. launched tomahawk cruise missiles against military targets in Iraq after an investigation by the U.S. government revealed an Iraqi plot to assassinate former President Bush during his visit to Kuwait earlier in the year. The briefers illustrated their remarks with charts elaborating on the Defense Department’s participation in the bombing. close
