Brent Scowcroft, interviewed in 1996.
Saddam Hussein is not a threat to his neighbors. He's a nuisance, he's an annoyance but he's not a threat. That we achieved. It was never our objective to get Saddam Hussein. Indeed, had we tried, we still might be occupying Baghdad. That would have turned a great success into a very messy probable defeat. What a prophet words for year 1996!
