Bush Calls On Aging Tigers: Amid wide-ranging attacks on the Administration’s handling of the global war on terror—abroad and at home—President Bush gathered former Secretaries of State and Defense at the White House last week—a tad overdue per some. Former head of State under the Clinton Administration, Madeline Albright, told the Washington Post, “This all should have happened a lot earlier.” Albright has been a vocal critic of the war in Iraq. President Reagan’s head of State, Alexander Haig, told reporters that Bush has taken “the absolutely correct position.” In a statement following the gathering, the President said that despite differing views, “These are good solid Americans who understand that we’ve got to succeed now that we’re there. And I’m most grateful for the suggestions that have been given.”
