Powell and Schwarzkopf thus contented themselves with two Iraqi generals, and Bush did not insist on anything more.
Despite all this, Schwarzkopf somehow managed to stay above the fray.
Schwarzkopf did at least suggest in 1997 that there was a possibility that Gulf War veterans were exposed to chemical agents.
Schwarzkopf told The New York Times that he had “absolutely no idea why there are missing parts from [the log].”
In 1996, Schwarzkopf said that there was “no chemical exposure [to Gulf War veterans] at all that I know of.”
