Note of Clarification

Dr. Roberts would like to add the following note of clarification. At about 21 minutes into the interview he is speaking about the G. H. W. Bush administration, whose Secretary of State James Baker gave guarantees to Mikhail Gorbachev. At about the 23½ minute mark, he is referring to the G. W. Bush administration, which pulled out of the ABM Treaty and changed the nuclear war doctrine. These administrations had completely different approaches towards Russia.
