Admiral Sandy Winnefeld, USN (ret.), distinguished professor of the practice in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs, has written a featured article for the U.S. Naval Insittute titled, "Operation Desert Storm—30 Years Later: My View from the Joint Staff."

Read an excerpt: 

With the intelligence community consumed by the situation in the Soviet Union/Russia, few took Saddam seriously, except those of us working in JOD. We urged that we be allowed to draw up plans in the event his bluster turned into action, but we were told that Iraq had been friendly during our various confrontations with Iran, and we did not need to plan for operations against a partner nation. 

Find the article on the U.S. Naval Institute website.
