Day #7 of Desert Storm, this January 23rd in 1991. The news of the day was predominated by war reports and air attacks, as the full-on invasion hadn't yet begun. Scud Missile attacks in Tel-Aviv. Sporadic ground skirmishes around the Saudi-Kuwait border. Coalition fighters ran some 12,000 sorties so far. Iraq claiming one raid scored a direct hit on a "baby formula factory" - the "factory" in question was well-guarded at the time. Vice-President Dan Quayle was busy decrying anti-war protesters, saying they were getting too much media coverage. The Pentagon was being criticized by the media for being too slow in giving updates on progress. And nobody knew exactly how long this thing was going to last.
And that's what was going on this day in 1991 from the CBS World News Roundup and News Updates for January 23rd.
