*Brent Scowcroft is well respected by both Democrats and Republicans as a fair and reasonable man. For this reason, President Reagan selected him to investigate the Iran-Contra weapons deal in 1986. Today in the White House he serves as the head of the National Security Council and is the President's chief advisor on security matters. He has a staff of capable and talented staffers (mostly military officers) that work inside the Old Executive Office Building preparing memorandum and other information for the President on national security matters.
Scowcroft remained out of the public eye during most of Operation Desert Storm, but was relied upon heavily inside the inner-circle of the White House decision-making process. Scowcroft advised the President on opinions and operations of the national security apparatus from the CIA to the Coast Guard and how they functioned in Operation Desert Storm. Scowcroft will be a major player in the formation of post-war security arrangements for the region, and is also expected to play a role in any peace treaties that may be reached in the near future.
