Pete Williams is Pentagon spokesman during the 1991 Persian Gulf War. He recalls, "Reporters wanted much more access to the battlefield . . . It was an unhappy compromise . . . It certainly didn't satisfy the news media." In 1993, Williams becomes a correspondent for NBC News, covering the Justice Department and the Supreme Court.
