Cease Fire Formally Ends Gulf War
On March 3, 1991, American General H. Norman Schwarzkopf and Saudi Lt. Gen. Prince Khalid discuss cease-fire terms with Iraqi commanders Lt. Gen. Mohammed Abdez Rahman al-Dagitistani and Lt. Gen. Sabin Abdel-Aziz al Douri. The Iraqis’ astonishment at the disparity involved in the prisoner exchange demonstrated how ignorant they still were of the magnitude of their own defeat.
